Pool Season Extended
 
The Board has approved an extension to the pool season of one weekend beyond the existing pool season schedule originally set to conclude on Sunday, September 13th.
 
As a result, the pool will remain open until 8:00 pm on the 13th. The pool will again open on Friday, September 18th, from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm; on Saturday the 19th from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm; and Sunday, September 20th, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. For both weekends, 2 lap-lanes will be assigned for lap swimming on a first-come/first-serve basis (the reservation system will not be used during this period). As has become the tradition, the last 30 minutes of the season on Sunday, September 20th, from 5:30 to 6:00 pm will be reserved as a “doggy swim” period.  

The Board reminds residents that guests are still not allowed per Montgomery County regulations and that consumption of alcohol in the pool enclosure during normal operating hours is prohibited. The Board and pool committee hope all residents will have an opportunity to enjoy the pool for a little while longer this year.

Fallsmead Park News
 
As of August 5th, the Board of Directors will cease marking the path around the pond as one-way (though the current markings may need a few more rainstorms to fully wash away). This means the Board is no longer requiring walkers to go only counter-clockwise around the pond. Proper safety protocols for the health of our neighborhood and neighbors - social distancing and mask-wearing - remain strongly encouraged.

Coronavirus Update
 
As we all do our part to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to remind folks of the heightened risks posed to our older neighbors, who may be in a higher risk category according to CDC guidance. We would ask that you consider the following:
 
  1. Be aware of senior neighbors who may be limiting their movements due to concerns about COVID-19. The CDC website recommends that older adults in communities where COVID-19 is spreading consider food deliveries through online methods, or through social networks. If you know of senior neighbors who may be avoiding public places to minimize risk of exposure to the virus, please consider reaching out to them via a call or email, to see if they are in need of assistance.
  2. Another alternative for those who would like to lend a helping hand to a neighbor (of any age) is the Fallsmead Neighborhood Assistance Program (contacts are Jesse Etelson 301-424-4355 or Jim Marinan 301-340-1325). The program consists of Fallsmead residents who have volunteered to assist those in need with a wide range of tasks. Both those who need assistance, or those who would like to volunteer to help, should contact Jesse and/or Jim to find out more.
Our concern for our neighbors, young and old, makes Fallsmead a special place to live. Please consider talking to your neighbors who may be in need of assistance, and providing help where you can.
