As many of you already know the pool is open and off to a great start. The water is warm and the weather has warmed up. Unfortunately we have already had someone(s) jumping the fence when the pool is closed to get into the pool area. This is a very dangerous activity. Not only could you be injured jumping the fence but the pool and pool area is very dark. An accident could happen very easily. Please keep a watch for anyone in the pool or pool area after 9pm. If you see someone please contact a board member. We all want everyone to be safe and the pool to remain in good condition.
Thank you and happy swimming
Many people know how easy it is for a child (or even an adult who can’t swim) to drown. What many don’t know is that you can drown (especially children) days after being in the pool. It is called “dry drowning” or “secondary drowning” and it is very real. I am sure many of you have witnessed a child swallowing a ton of water while playing or swimming especially if they are a beginning swimmer. This is how dry/secondary drowning can happen. Please read this article for more information to help keep your loved ones safe.

A little history of Novi:
The board would like to give a big “THANK YOU” to Cathy Cavanaugh for being an outstanding clubhouse rental manager over the last several years. Cathy has done an amazing job at helping the residents rent the clubhouse, follow the rules and maintain the parking during events (which let’s face it, is no easy task at times). She is passing her torch on to another Kathy. Kathy Gerecke. She will be taking over immediately, so if you wish to rent the clubhouse please contact her at the number listed below as well as on the clubhouse page. I am sure she will do a great job as well.
Clubhouse Rental Information:
Planning that upcoming wedding or baby shower? Maybe thinking ahead to a graduation party (it really isn’t that far off you know). Well, look no further. If you don’t already know, Applegate I has a perfect place to hold such gatherings. The Applegate I clubhouse has a ton of space, a full kitchen and table and chairs that can be used. If you wish to look at the clubhouse to see if it will fit your next event contact Linda Peach at 248-476-6313. Please note – if you are looking to have an event during the time when the pool is open – the pool is NOT included in the rental of the clubhouse. You can click on the clubhouse tab at the top of the page and see a slideshow of the clubhouse and read the official rules of renting it for an event or see if the date you are looking at is available using the booking calendar.
