Volunteer Opportunities

Updated August 25th, 2022

Fairway Farms Swim Club is a member-owned organization that depends upon its members to help keep the club in good working order. A big thank you to the numerous volunteers that stepped up to help make repairs and improvements to the club in 2021 and 2022 – we can’t thank you enough! Especially in 2022, we’ve attempted to identify members that have helped in the associated project pages.

Even as the 2022 season ends, we continue to need help (now and into 2023). If you are interested in volunteering or donating, please submit your information in the form below. These jobs are just ideas – we’re very much open to suggestions.

Donations

We do our best to replace aging club assets as quickly as we can. However, as noted in our spring update, needs can exceed what the annual budget supports. Our asset registry attempts to track when items will need replacement. See something on this list that’s nearing the end of life that you’d like to donate? Have an idea for something at the club that could be replaced and/or would enhance the member experience? If so, please consider donating.

Projects

All projects will be coordinated by Building & Grounds (referred to below as “B&G”) unless otherwise noted.

Plant a Tree

Necessary tree work over the winter eliminated multiple trees on the property. We’d like to re-plant new trees on the property to make up for the loss. The new tree should be at least 5 to 6 feet tall. Coordinate selection with an arborist (to select an appropriate tree for the soil type) and planting location with B&G.

This opportunity may be claimed by multiple members. We’re hoping to plant up to half a dozen trees.

Prepare the Small Pavilion for Paint

We would like to re-paint the small pavilion prior to opening day. This requires a lot of prep work (scraping) – and we could use some help.

Prepare the Men’s Shower for Paint

The paint in the men’s shower room is in need of significant preparation work. We’d like to re-paint and properly re-install the rubber baseboard, but in order to do so, the walls must be stripped of loose paint and adhesive. This could be done carefully with a power washer (club-provided) if care is taken to block debris from clogging the drains.

Refurbish Funbrella Hardware

The hardware on the giant umbrella at the northeast corner of the pool deck (referred to as the “Funbrella”) is in poor condition. We’d like to replace all hardware, then steel-brush and repaint rusted portions with an appropriate product (i.e. Rustoleum spray paint).

Deep Clean Club House

Anywhere and everywhere – the clubhouse needs a good deep cleaning. In particular, the bathroom stalls. Cleaning any portion of the clubhouse large or small would be very much appreciated.

Re-Install Handicapped Parking Sign

The handicapped parking sign in the parking lot was knocked over and damaged in a prior winter (presumably by someone doing “donuts” in our parking lot). For this job, the post and sign should be repaired or replaced as needed, then re-installed in the appropriate spot in the lot.

Clean up Pool Deck Fence Rock

Extend and clean up the border under the fence around the pool deck. Approximately 400 to 425 sqft worth of additional material will be needed.
