Refrigerator in the pool building

The old refrigerator in the pool building is no longer working and we would like to replace it. First, we’d like to check with the community to see if anyone has a used refrigerator they would like to donate to the community.

If you do, please call or text Rich Barber at 716-913-9169.

Next Board Meeting: MONDAY, August 3 @ 6:45 pm – Pool Shelter

NOTE: This meeting is open to all community members. Masks will be required. We will also practice social distancing (unless you are from the same household). Please bring a chair with you so that it will be easier to stay at least 6 feet apart.

Craneridge Earth Day to be held This Saturday, July 18th at 9:00AM – Pool Shelter

Each year we get together for one morning to spruce up the common property of Craneridge. Neighbors pitch in to clean up the Pool Center, Mail Center and Meadow as needed. This year we will meet at the Pool Center on July 18th at 9:00AM. Please bring rakes, shovels, trowels, hand tools, wheel barrows, and good spirits to help with the work. If you own a pickup truck please consider driving it to help with hauling. We typically work until noon. We will have coffee and donuts available in the morning.

This is a great opportunity to meet some of your neighbors, have fun and help our community at the same time. Please bring a Mask. We will also practice social distancing (unless you are from the same household).

You can sign-up for specific projects on-line: Earth Day Sign-up link
There will also be a sign-up sheet posted at the Mail Center.

If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Adam Wichlacz at 716-725-1864. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday, July 18th!!

Craneridge Pool and Playground Update

A couple notes of interest regarding the pool and playground that were discussed at last night’s BOD meeting:
1 – The pool will be open until 9pm every day effective immediately.
2 – The lights on the basketball court will be on until 10pm nightly until Labor Day.  This will go into effect as soon as possible as we need to set up a timer.
3 – There have been some issues with people properly signing in and signing out of the pool.  It is important that everyone who enters the pool area sign in and sign out accurately.  This is part of our covid business plan.  Failure to comply with this puts us at risk of being shut down and incurring a fine of $10,000.  Please be sure to sign in and sign out appropriately.
3a – There is the option to sign in with your smartphone using a QR code.  If you do not have one, you will need to download a QR reader to your smartphone.  At the sign-in table, scan the code.  This will open a sheet on your phone where you can enter your name , lot number, and phone number.  Using the QR code is optional if you prefer not to use a pen and the paper log book.  However, one of the two methods must be used when entering the pool area.

Next Board Meeting: Tuesday, July 7 @ 6:45 pm – Pool Shelter

NOTE: This meeting is open to all community members. Masks will be required. We will also practice social distancing (unless you are from the same household). Please bring a chair with you so that it will be easier to stay at least 6 feet apart.
