Appeal for Funding Reaches Beyond Our Borders

Our community swimming pool project has been in the works since the Fall of 2003. That’s a long time and might suggest lack of interest and support. But that is not the case. This project seems to be gaining momentum both in expressed interest and financial support. More and more people are believing this pool will become a reality. Individuals, families and businesses have been actively contributing. The Pool Committee has stayed focused and very much committed to getting a swimming pool built for everyone to enjoy. Through many challenges and much patience, it appears slow and steady wins the race!

One of our contributors sends out appeals for additional support by doing a mass mailing to his Class of 1968 classmates. Where is he doing all of this from? Germany! Growing up in Delhi in the 1950’s and 1960’s, Mark remembers the daily fun activities at the swimming pool on Sheldon Drive. Whether in the pool playing and creating water games or on the banks outside the pool gates socializing with friends, he never forgot the good memories of those summers at the pool. His fond experiences of summers in Delhi have been relayed to the committee by many other contributors near and far. Mark decided he could do something for our community project despite his distance from his childhood hometown. How grateful our communities are for all the support generated by memories and visions of summer fun around the swimming pool. Hats off to you all!
