INRSC 2017 Membership Information Packet

posted Mar 28, 2017, 6:48 AM by Jack Rowley

Can you believe that summer is right around the corner?  It sure is!  And I’ll bet you need something warm to look forward to right about now.  Well, we have been working long and hard to make sure that this will be the best summer at INRSC yet.  

Ready to join us?  The attached packet is what you need to get there. Take a look so you can be ready for Opening Day.     
What you will find in this packet: 
  • Welcome letter and highlights of changes and new information.  
  • Reminders and Special Events. (p. 2) 
  • Membership levels and definitions. (p. 3) 
  • Membership Information Form. (p. 4 – to be filled out and submitted with your payment.) 
In addition to all the fun we had last year, we have even more this year.  One thing we will be adding is something special for the adults in our pool community. Adult Swim is that date-night, evening out that lets you get away from the hustle and bustle of home and work to sit and relax by the pool with food, drinks, and a little fun. And that’s just the beginning…oh the plans we have for you and yours…just wait and see!!!   
One of the best attributes about our pool is the opportunity for us to be active and socialize with friends and neighbors in a safe, comfortable environment. But we need your help to do that. Please consider volunteering.  Even a few hours of time over the summer can really make all the difference. Additionally, the Board is always looking for new members to help manage the pool.  If you are interested, please contact Dina Mitchell at 412-366-1636.  
Because of all our wonderful members last year, we were at capacity!!! So this year, if you’re coming back, we want you to get in with no problem.  Guests and Sponsored Memberships are on a first-come, first-served basis. So send your application and payment ASAP.  
If you have any questions about this packet, membership, or suggestions for our summer home away from home, please feel free to contact .  
We are so excited to see you again very soon! Thank you for your support.  See you at the pool!
