2019 Spring Clean Up
Our scheduled Spring Clean Up Day is Saturday May 11, 2019, from 8:30am to 1:00pm. We’ll send out a Sign Up Genius notice in a week or so. If you can contribute a couple of hours, that would be terrific. If you bring any children, it’s probably best if they are 10+ years old. We’ll find chores for them as well.
Welcome To Dowden Terrace Pool
Welcome to the 2019 Summer season. We are so excited for this season -- if you are planning parties and other events at the pool over the summer, please remember to schedule those through the Calendar tab. If you are interested in joining our pool, please sign up on our wait list. Any questions can be directed to Susan Stickles, Membership Chair at email@example.com.
Bad Weather - Call Ahead
Heavy rain and thunderstorms may require us to temporarily close DT Pool for safety. Our policy is to wait 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or lightening before re-opening the pool. Call ahead to DT Pool at (703) 998-9761 to determine the operating status.
Dowden Terrace is a member-run pool -- our rates are low because members volunteer their time to help the pool succeed. The Board is looking for members to volunteer for a variety of tasks to keep the pool running smoothly. Please see the attached link Board Members for more detail.
Grills and Kitchen
Please remember that the kitchen and grills are there for everyone's use and clean up after each use.
Please wipe up any greasy messes around the grills and remember to check the grease catches below the grills BEFORE you start cooking.
Extra propane tanks are in the white steel cage near the ping pong table. Set used tanks outside the cage.
The Board wanted to share some water safety articles for basic safety tips. These were certainly eye opening for me as contrary to the Hollywood portrayal of a drowning, it is often silent and very little splashing.
DT Dolphin Swim Team
Our Dowden Terrace Dolphins Swim Team has a long and proud involvement with the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL), joining the league in 1958 in the "South" division. The swim team has always been a strong competitor as well as a neighborhood focal point.
The DT Swim Team is open to Dowden Terrace members only. For more information about the upcoming 2018 season, visit the DT Dolphins Home Page, or contact Swim Team Representative Erin Conaton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
