TAHS Pool Benefits From Large Donation
STEVE SHINKO/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
A fundraising effort by the Tamaqua Area High School Swim Team Boosters and the Tamaqua Blue Waves Swim Team Boosters netted $8,000 that helped to fund the addition of 5 lanes on the current scoreboard as well as new scoring plates on the pool deck at the Tamaqua Area High School swimming pool. A total of $6,000 was raised during a recent Vera Bradley Purse Bingo that was co-sponsored by the Blue Waves and Swimming Boosters. An additional $2,000 was contributed by the Blue Waves themselves to meet the total expense of the equipment purchased.
