Letter From President

Dear Donaldson Run Families –

In preparation for moving to a new swim reservations process, all active members must accept the COVID-19 waiver in our on-line membership system. We have set up the COVID-19 waiver just like annual dues registration. All of your Accounts have been set to “Unpaid” to trigger this process. When you log in, you will receive a message saying:

Your Account is not paid for the current season. To make a payment click here.

Click on the link to review and accept the COVID-19 waiver for all members on your account. There is no charge as all of your accounts are already paid in full. Select any payment method to review and submit your order. The payment method will be ignored. Upon completion, your account will be set back to “Paid” status, and you will have access to the new swim reservations process when it is launched later this week.

PLEASE NOTE: You will not be able to reserve swim time without first accepting the COVID-19 waiver on-line.

If you have any trouble with this process, please send an email to

Best Regards,

Bob Hutchison
