The outdoor covered patio can be reserved by visiting the front Gate house, and discussing with the staff member on duty.

Picnic tables in the grass patio area are assigned to members by seniority. There is no need to apply for a picnic table as your bond number is already on the list. When available, a table will be offered to the next bondholder on the list.

Tables located on the patio area are on a first come, first served basis each day.

If it involves an issue related to the pool, please share your concern with the Pool Manager. This person is responsible to oversee the lifeguard staff and manage the pool area. If it is a problem, not pool-related, please use the email form. Remember though, all members of Hillside are responsible that the club is being operated safely and responsibly.

Our club is staffed mainly by volunteers. If you experience unsafe behavior, for example on the part of a minor, please intercede. Running unsafely, damaging property, are examples of situations where any responsible adult manner, a Hillside member, should intercede and address. You can even follow up with an email to the Hillside board on something you resolved. We would appreciate having that information so re-occurring situations can be resolved by the entire Board. It’s all our club.

Let’s work together to keep it safe and enjoyable.

Yes, guest are welcome. A guest fee of $10 per adult and $5 per child is required for the day. The Hosting member must be on site with guests at all times.

You may certainly use the outdoor grounds off-season. If you wish to rent the house, you must contact the club to speak to the person in charge of renting the facility.

According to the bylaws, and to protect your interests, resignation letters are requested to be sent in writing to the P.O. Box (PO BOX 14-1056, SI NY 10314) dated prior to March 31st, to be effective for that year. Letters should include your original bond and your families ID cards.

If you no longer have your original bond, please note that in your letter. In the past, it has been strongly recommended that this letter be sent via certified mail, so that you have proof it was received by us prior to that date (if received on or after 4/1, its considered a resignation for the next year, and current year dues would be taken out of the bond money). Once we receive your letter, we will acknowledge the receipt via email, so the certified mail is your choice, to provide you evidence we have received. Please reference your bond number in all communications.
