Please join Friends of Barton Springs Pool on Thursday, October 2, 2014 to scrub Barton Springs Pool clean. The last big rain that swept through the pool is gone, leaving the pool a bit murky, but now that Barton Springs has been reopened, we’re hoping you’ll join us at the last volunteer cleaning opportunity for the summer season! In addition to the usual 2-hour shifts between 10 am and 2 pm, we’ve also added two extra shifts, including a 4-6 pm shift for folks otherwise encumbered by school or work hours, so NO EXCUSES! This is (possibly) the last glorious chance to prance about in the glorious cool spring waters, attending to the scrubbing, trimming, cleaning, weeding, and other upkeep needs of our lovely Barton Springs Pool.
So bring some friends! As always, food and refreshments will be supplied.
If you plan on attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP!

Pool cleanings take place in two-hour from 10-12 and 12-2. We need three to ten volunteers for each shift along with experienced volunteers to serve as shift leaders.
At the seasonal monthly pool cleanings, FBSP volunteers scrub rocks, vacuum the pool bottom, clean algae off steps and railings, skim algae off the pool surface, plant flowers and help maintain the pool grounds, paint benches and trim, and generally lend a hand to make the pool and grounds as clean and beautiful as possible.
We look look forward to seeing you there!
