The Sea Trail Master Association employees thirteen residents of Sea Trail to monitor our pools, starting Memorial Day week end, May 27 through Labor Day – seven days a week from 11 am to 9 pm.  The pool monitors are there to be sure everyone has a fun, safe and relaxing time at the pools. When you enter the pool area, they will greet you and have you sign in. The monitors will answer any questions you might have. And if they do not have an answer, they will try to find the answer for you.

Other duties you might notice the pool monitor’s doing throughout their shift is enforcing the rules, monitoring the weather if storms are in the area. They also clean and straighten the furniture, pick up litter and remove leaves from the pool. They track the number of people to be sure we do not exceed capacity and they have taken CPR/AED training. The monitors are looking forward to meeting you all this summer at our beautiful pools.

Donna Morris and Susanna Partrick are the volunteer coordinators for the pool monitors.  If you have any questions about the pool monitors, please contact either Donna or Susanna.
