Raffle drawing helps support Friends of Pool 9 efforts ...

The Friends of Pool 9 recently held its Volunteer Appreciation Dinner which also culminated the annual fundraising efforts for the non-profit organization. One aspect of these efforts is the annual raffle drawing, which featured a chance to win a pair of prize packages. Each contribution helps to support the Friends of Pool 9 volunteer organization in its ongoing efforts. The benefit of these efforts is realized by individuals who enjoy a river experience due to cleaner beaches with safe and expanded facilities such as fire pits and portable toilets. The river pool also thrives in a healthier state with increased wildlife and natural habitat due to clean-up and enhancement projects. Finally, children develop an informed interest in nature enabling them to become future stewards of their resources through educational adventure programs. Donations are accepted throughout the year.
