Fundraising Effort Underway for Strawberry Point Pool Renovations

The Strawberry Point community is hoping to raise enough money to renovate the town’s pool. Lisa Baumgartner serves on the committee for the renovation project and says improvements to the pool are long overdue.

She says the pool’s renovation plans are a scaled-down version of a similar effort several years ago.

The renovation project has a price tag of about 664-thousand dollars. The committee plans to apply for several grants to help with the costs. They are also hoping to receive donations – both monetary and in-kind. And there are plans for a Strawberry Point Aquatic Center Gala fundraiser this Saturday at the Franklin Hotel.
