Pool receives grant

The Northern Lehigh Swimming Pool has acknowledged receipt of a $4,077 grant from the Henry L. Mickley/Mable S. Fravel Charitable Trust. The money will go toward the completion of the renovation of the main and baby pools this coming spring.

The 2014 season will open with a complete refurbishment of both pools.

The Swimming Pool Association will hold its annual board of directors reorganization meeting at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 25, in the faculty room at the Slatington Elementary School.

During the general meeting, the board will discuss plans for the completion of the refurbishment of the pools, fundraising ideas, Slatington's 150th celebration, and summer student employment.

Anyone interested in becoming a member, or helping the association, is encouraged to attend.

In addition, any suggestions to improve the pool facility would be greatly appreciated.
