Pool cel­e­bra­tion for open­ing and birthday

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

This year marks the 50th an­niver­sary of the open­ing of the community’s town swim­ming pool.

To cel­e­brate the mil­stone, and the open­ing of the pool for the sum­mer sea­son, a cel­e­bra­tion will be held at the fa­cil­ity this Sun­day.

Due to do­na­tions re­ceived by the Ber­ri­gan Swim­ming Pool Com­mit­tee only last week, en­try to the pool is free for the en­tire sea­son.

Two Ber­ri­gan and Dis­trict De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion (BDDA) spon­sors — John and Paul Lane of DAWMAC In­dus­tries and Joe Cot­tam of Cot­tam Engi­neer­ing — have do­nated a com­bined $10,000 to en­able the pool com­mit­tee to lift the gate fee.

The pool of­fi­cially opens this Sun­day from 12pm to 6pm.

There will be a sausage siz­zle avail­able, Devon­shire teas and live mu­sic and other en­ter­tain­ment.

Pool com­mit­tee mem­bers en­cour­age all shire res­i­dents to make use of this won­der­ful fa­cil­ity, be­ing beau­ti­fully main­tained by a hard work­ing vol­un­teer com­mit­tee.

To help en­sure the pool can be open for the community, the com­mit­tee is look­ing for vol­un­teers again this year.

If you can help by vol­un­teer­ing three hours of your time for one shift, it would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

Vol­un­teer hours to be filled are 3pm to 6pm ev­ery day from Novem­ber 11 to March 15.

The com­mit­tee is hop­ing to get enough in­ter­est so that ev­ery­one only does one three hour shift for the sea­son.

The pool com­mit­tee is also look­ing for items re­lat­ing to Ber­ri­gan Pool - pho­tos, news­pa­per ar­ti­cles and any mem­o­ra­bilia - for an an­niver­sary dis­play.

Any­one who can of­fer their time, or who has items to do­nate, is asked to contact Sue Chisholm on 5885 2976.
