WESTMORELAND- Fundraising efforts continue to hopefully open the Westmoreland pool this summer.
The Westmoreland Summer Activities Association put on A Spring Fling Family Fun Day at the Westmoreland Town Park on Saturday, with hopes to raise the final $18,000 to help pay for the filtering system. The pool has been closed for several years now because of that system, and it also needs some renovations.
The association has raised over $70,000 so far, but just needs that last bit of money to open up the pool. "People just want a place to go and swim, and they don't want to spend all the money on the chemicals. Instead they can just go buy a memship for the pool," said the Westmoreland Summer Activity Coordinator, Nadine Zeller.
