Saturday, July 16, Cascade Pool will have a children’s Lap-a-thon fundraiser. The money raised will be used to replace the pipes around the pool. (See Letter to the Editor for significant funding needs)
Children ages 5 thru 17years may participate. Lap pledge envelopes are available at the front office today. The Lap-a-rhon will be open to all children and no participation fee will be charged. Young children will swim across the pool and older children will swim the length. Donors may pledge a flat rate or an amount per lap. Flippers may be worn for this event.
Our local Jackson County businesses have very generously offered to donate some top prizes to encourage our youth to participate in supporting their community pool. 1st prize will be for most money collected, 2nd prize will be for most laps swam and 3rd prize will be for best effort. The entrants will be divided in two groups by age and ability.
Some of the prizes include a Wii bundle donated by South Valley Bank, Philips Dual Screen portable DVD player donated by SOFCU Community Credit Union, Samsung Tracfones All in One-NO contract, Three video good bags with gift cards, donated by Play n Trade.
