Manorlu Winter Update

February 14, 2016

Happy Winter - Count Down to Opening Day!

We hope this finds our Manorlu families well and warm during the winter of 2016. It's just a little over three months until we open for our next season of summer fun! We look forward to seeing everyone back at the pool, but between now and then, we'd like to provide our members with information about the upcoming season. Stay warm and please address any questions or concerns to

Membership Rates and Dates for 2016 Season

Bondholder: $575

1st Child: $80

2nd Child: $70

3rd & Each Additional Child: $60

Additional Adult: $80

Single Adult Bondholder: $410

Late Fee: $50

With Memorial Day falling early this year, dues must be paid in full by Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Members not paid by the due date will be subject to the $50 late fee. Please note that the Board DOES NOT want to charge anyone a late fee. It is important that dues payments be received timely in order to properly plan for the upcoming season. As in years past, members may remit multiple payments toward their dues anytime before the due date. As payments are received, they will be applied to your account and a statement with the balance will be emailed.

Due to continuing lower than targeted new membership and general increases in expenses (mainly taxes, insurance and maintenance), the Board voted unanimously to raise bondholder dues by $25 and single adult bondholder by $10. There are no increases in rates for the child membership, additional adult membership and late payment fee. Members will still receive a $100 rebate for referring a new family that joins in full. The effect of this should mean a very small increase per family for the upcoming season. Look for more info to follow and REFER A FRIEND!

Seeking a Snack Bar Vendor

Sadly, once again we find ourselves in the situation that our snack bar provider will not be returning. If you know of someone who would be interested in running the snack bar, please have them contact us at Our typical arrangement offers the provider use of the snack bar facility as well as gas/electricity/water and existing equipment. Providers must have a current Safe Food Handler license.

We are open to suggestions and recommendations. Thank you!

Calling All Manorlu Lifeguards!

Manorlu is hiring certified lifeguards for the 2016 season. Any Manorlu member interested in applying can find the application form on the Manorlu website home page (button at the bottom of the page.) Lifeguards who worked at Manorlu last season DO NOT need to submit another application. He/she will be contacted by the club manager. Lifeguards who only worked from the sub-list must submit an application.

Applicants DO NOT need to have his/her certification at the time of application, but must have proof of certification by opening day, Saturday May 28, 2016. Any member who will obtain his/her certification after opening day should also submit an application noting the anticipated completion date on the form. Those applicants will be considered for our sub-list.

Applications are due no later than April 15, 2016 and may be emailed to

Help Us Clean Up and Open Up!

In an effort to save the club money, the managers and board members have taken on the tasks of clean-up and pool opening (rather than pay our pool maintenance provider). Each of the last three years this has saved Manorlu over $1000. It’s a big job though...

The good news is that “many hands make light work.” Any help, even an hour, is really appreciated! For the safety of your children, we kindly ask that any young children be left at home. So, please make an effort to join us Saturday, May 14th for a general clean-up in preparation for opening and the first Open House. We will begin at 8am and continue into the afternoon.

Thank you in advance!
