Drowning led to city’s first community swimming pool
To the Editor,
The Joyce Andrews Memorial Pool was built because a young girl drowned and the community felt it needed to prevent it from happening again. There is a high percentage of voters who were once fortunate enough to have taken swimming lessons at Joyce Andrews Memorial Pool. How can they deny the same opportunity for the young children today? For less than $20 a year, that opportunity can be reinstated.
At one point in time when the present pool was built, there was a quarter mill passed to support the pool. The State did away with that millage when the school taxes were restructured. At the present time no millage for support of the pool is in effect, so it becomes vital to vote YES on Feb. 28 for the pool millage.
We belong to a vibrant and responsible community. Certainly we can expect support and an empathic YES vote on Feb. 28.
What other community facility services citizens from toddler to the elderly? Please consider a YES vote.
