Looking for help to keep pool open

Editor-

The Millersport Pool is in danger of not opening this year. If that happens, the chance of it re-opening in the future is minimal.

The goal is to raise $15,000 in donations and through fund raisers to offset the deficit. In order to raise that kind of money, council has directed me to form a Swimming Pool Board to fundraise and help in the operation of the pool.

This is a plea to the residents of Walnut Township and the surrounding area to send me ideas and volunteers. If there is no response to the Pool Board, the pool will not open. Area residents can contact me at the Village of Millersport 740-467-2333 or by email villageofmillersport@yahoo.com with their ideas.

The pool has been a community fixture for over 40 years and it needs your help. Thank you for your input and ideas.

Vince Popo, Mayor’s Assistant
