Letter to the Editor: Support the Traer Pool

Dear Editor:

At our May city council meeting we were shown some photos of the Traer swimming pool in its deteriorating condition. We are approximately 2 years into our fundraising campaign and have yet to reach halfway to our goal. The Make Waves for Traer pool committee has been working very hard at trying to fundraise and gain community support of this project. The project is becoming more & more urgent as our pool deteriorates! Soon, we will be facing handicap accessibility issues as well as having a bath house with cracks in the foundation. Regardless of whether you utilize the pool or have children that do, having a swimming pool in Traer is a necessity. Not only is it valuable for physical activity for children over the summer and swimming lessons, it is valuable as a community asset for families looking to reside in Traer. If we want to continue to have a thriving community and school district, we need to have young families moving into our community. We have a lot of really great assets here, let's NOT let our Traer swimming pool become a broken up, abandoned hole in the ground. Let's all take an interest in this project and do whatever we can to make it happen!!

You don't have to feel like you can't support this project if you are unable to give thousands of dollars. Any amount is helpful! There is also the convenient option of pledging. You can pledge a specific amount and make payments on that amount. Such as if you want to pledge $1000, but can't do the entire amount all at once. You can make monthly, quarterly or annual payments to make up your pledge, as well as extended them over a few years. The most important aspect here is COMMUNITY SUPPORT!

Please consider what you can do today to support the Make Waves for Traer pool campaign.
