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.
 
 
The Communications and Social Committees Need Your Help!
 
Fallsmead is looking for volunteers! After many years of service, the Committee Chairs for the Fallsmead Social and Communications Committees have recently resigned. We are looking for neighbors to give back to our community and help make it run. This is a great way for new neighbors to get involved in our community!
 
 
 
Lap Swimming - Revised Reservation Structure
 
The Pool Committee and Board are issuing a revised structure and guidelines for use of lap lanes at the pool. We are moving to 30 minute time-blocks for lap swimming (doubling the number of time slots), allowing residents to reserve two time blocks per day, and providing 6 1-hour time blocks Monday through Friday between 11:00 am and Noon to better accommodate those wishing to do lap swimming during the week. The attached guidelines provide further clarification and instructions for making reservations under the new system.
 
 
Fallsmead Pool Memberplash Updates
 
Please be advised that the Membersplash reservation system is now configured to allow people to make reservations by member of each household and not by account/household. This means you can send one member at one time block, and another member at another time block, on the same day. We hope this addresses some of the challenges residents have confronted.
 
Also, residents can now manage their reservations online from within their own Membersplash accounts. To do so, log into the main system (https://fallsmead.membersplash.com) and click on the "My Reservations" button. From there, residents should see their existing reservations. To change them, simply hit the "Manage" button.
 
IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MEMBERSPLASH OR HAVE QUESTIONS, contact the Pool Committee directly at pool@fallsmead.org.
 
 
Fallsmead Pool Opening - Phase 2
 
The Fallsmead Pool will open on Friday, June 26th, for general but restricted pool operations. This will allow up to 55 residents to enjoy the pool in 2 hour time-blocks (including diving well and beach entry) while retaining 2 lanes for reserved lap swimming in 1 hour blocks for individual residents.
 
The general pool and lap lanes will be reserved using the Membersplash systemMembersplash is different than the Fallsmead.org website and has different log-in credentials. Revised guidelines and instructions are provided to help streamline the transition to restricted but more normal pool operations (a supplemental update to the pool rules was provided on July 16, 2020). Initial reservation capabilities should be available Thursday for Friday time blocks.
 
We continue to ask for your patience as we work to make the pool available for use with necessary precautions. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

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.
