cost about $1.2 million, which was partially funded by $600,000 in state capital funds and local business support
Those who are especially excited about the future of summer swimming is Stingrays swim team board president Angie Raugh, team coach Patricia Lefeld and St. Henry village administrator Ron Gelhaus who were all s part of the 20-member planning committee who helped with the design plans.
The new pool will also help with the development of the St. Henry swim teams during the school year, as the MAC is getting closer to recognizing swimming as conference sport.
With the new pool the admission will increase:
- family season pass is $140
- individual season pass is $60.
- Single-day admission is $5 per person
- children ages 3 and younger will have free admission
Why did St. Henry need a new pool? The old pool has been a part of the community for almost 50 years.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held tomorrow at 11:30 am to celebrate the new addition. Refreshments and hot dogs will be served with free swimming.
