Next Pool Cleaning — June 30, 2016

UPDATE — Our next volunteer pool cleaning event is Thursday, June 30, from 9am til 3pm.  Barring unforeseen flooding, we will need lots of volunteers to help clean the Springs and tidy our beautiful pool and surrounding grounds, so please join us!  Sign up for a shift at our VolunteerSpot registration link, http://vols.pt/Y5jpVC.earthdaycleaningparty

At the June cleaning, volunteers can help spiff up Barton Springs Pool by brushing and vacuuming the pool bottom, cleaning stair rails and sidewalls, painting the south deck blocks, landscaping, gardening around the pool grounds, weeding the Great Lawn, and generally lending a hand to make the pool and grounds as clean and beautiful as possible. There are also lots of projects both in and out of the water, so please dress appropriately. This means long sleeves, pants and shirt, closed toed shoes and socks for grounds work. Wet clothes for muddy work in the pool. Don’t forget your towel and sun protection!

May 5 Pool Cleaning at Barton Springs!

Just a quick reminder that our next volunteer pool cleaning event is this Thursday, May 5, from 9am til noon.  As we work through our mild Austin spring season, Barton Springs needs your help to clean the Springs and tidy our beautiful pool and surrounding grounds, so please join us!  We expect a crew of volunteers from AMD to be on hand to help, and hope this will be a great opportunity for education and service in support of Barton Springs!  Eschewing the tradition of having folks sign up online for shifts, we’re asking folks to RSVP to our communications chair (communications@friendsofbartonspringspool.org) if you plan on joining us.  For our next cleaning, we’ll get the kinks worked out for our shift registration system.
