Manager’s Message 7/25/21
It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of July. It seems like yesterday that we were preparing everything to start our season. On behalf of all of our employees, I want to thank you all for your help in making this season successful thus far. We look forward to several more weeks of fun before Fall gets here!
I am happy to report parties are back on at RPSP. You can reserve time on our party deck for a birthday, reunion, or other special occasion. Please see our website for details. If you have any questions, stop by the office, and I would be glad to help!
Even though our season is winding down, we have some exciting events planned in August. First, we will be having our first ever “Float through August” event! Grab your favorite inflatable, noodle, or inner tube and relax with us at the pool on Saturday, August 14th. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., children will be able to use their floats, and in continuation of the theme, they can enjoy a refreshing root beer float, courtesy of the RPSP Board!
Don’t worry adults, we did not forget about you! At 8pm the grounds will be cleared, so at 8:15pm members and guests age 17 years and older are invited to return for a movie while floating in the pool. (This years movie is TBD, but think “Jaws”). As always, no glass drinks are permitted on the pool deck.
Additionally, on Friday, August 13th, we will be honoring our staff with an end of the year party similar to prior years. The pool will close to members at 8:00 p.m.
Finally, RPSP is proud to host a book signing on Saturday, August 21st from 3:30 to 5:30. Join your neighbor, author Tracy C. Gold, for a brief story time followed by a book signing and activities for kids. Tracy is the author of Everyone is Sleepy but the Baby about a baby who just won’t go to bed, and Trick or Treat, Bugs to Eat about a bat trick or treating for bugs. Books will be available for sale at the event. A portion of the profits will be donated to the Roland Park Pool.
If you have any questions about these events, do not hesitate to stop in the office next time you are at the pool.

COVID-19 Procedures Update
The first question you may have: “Are reservations required at the start of the 2021 season?” With the Mayor and the Baltimore City Health Commissioner’s announcement to lift restrictions beginning May 17th, https://mayor.
- All members age 12 and over are strongly encouraged to have received a COVID vaccine. RPSP does not currently plan to track member’s vaccination status.
- No member should use the pool or facilities if they are experiencing COVID symptoms regardless of vaccine status. Members should immediately report a positive COVID test to RPSPmembership@gmail.com, so notification can be attempted to all members who may have been exposed. No member should return to the pool until 2 weeks after a negative test from all members of your household. Negative test can be communicated to the pool via self-affirmation.
