Fundraising Event at the Midtown Grill

How do you adequately thank the many businesses within our area for their support in making our community swimming pool a reality?  The Midtown Grill Restaurant owned by Master Chef Giorgio and Aurora Bagatta located at 97 Main Street in Delhi has offered to put on a Pasta Poolooza event on Sunday, May 19th from 1pm – 6pm.  The buffet style spread of delicious food will please anyone’s palate.  And, all proceeds go directly to the pool project.  Not only are they providing the foods and location, but they are arranging the advertising, door prizes and music.

Additionally,Randy and Kim Shepard, publishers of Decker Advertising donated advertising in the County Shopper, Townsquare Media Broadcasting’s Market Manager George Wells donated  radio broadcasting of the event , Karen Clifford, owner of Serendipity Expressions donated shirts as door prizes and the Critter Sitter owned by Nancy Walsh donated gift certificates for pet care.  The Pool Committee and our entire community are truly humbled by their generous offers of their time and services.

Expect more to follow.

Help Support the Project by Purchasing a Shirt

The Pool Committee has created a light blue t-shirt (water!) just perfect for everyday wear and to show support for the swimming pool project.  It is a quality cotton shirt which comes in all sizes, complete with our mascot, Sammy the Swimmer.  A pretty good deal for $10. You can order by calling Kathy Davino at 607-746-7396.  Check it out, as well, on Facebook. 

Also, the Pool Committee will have a booth at the Firefest scheduled for Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th at the Maple Shade Farm on Back River Road.  We will be answering your questions about the swimming pool, having some displays and selling the t-shirts. There may even be free snacks to share with you.  The Firefest is a big event with many activities for the whole family.  Come join the fun.  Be sure to look for us!


Still Seeking Grant Funding

The Pool Committee has been diligently searching for grant sources.  Jen Green suggested the Constitution Pipeline Community Grant Program.  The  Community Foundation for Central New York  at  www.  is a potential fund source. And the committee will try again to appeal to the O’Connor Foundation for matching financial support.  Lori Paulson of Delaware County Economic Development and a member of The Pool Committee, has pursued all of these options for grant funding.  These three organizations may give our community the remaining funds to get the pool in and operating.  Very encouraging!

Sammy the Swimmer!

This is Sammy, our pool project mascot.  He was  introduced to the Pool Committee as a possible representative (mascot) by Scott Oles. He was unanimously approved to join our committee and will undoubtedlyhelp us make the biggest splash in all of Delaware County when the pool is filled and open!!  It is expected that Sammy will remain a light hearted,  catchy symbol  of this pool project and take a visible spot at the swimming pool once it is complete.

As you can see in one of Sammy's photos, he has been getting around Delhi.  Check out Facebook and guess the locations!!
