Who we are:
We began as a grassroots campaign to raise the necessary funds to help pay for short term repairs to open our community pool for the 2006 season. We then formed a nonprofit organization; Friends of Dormont Pool, Inc.
Our organization was established to help generate long term funding to make the major repairs needed to this Historic Landmark pool, as well as needed upgrades.
The pool was built in 1920 and has opened every summer since but due to years of neglect was in desperate need of work on both the pool and the bathhouse.
It was scheduled to close in 2006 and its future was in jeopardy. That's when we stepped in.
We will continue our fund raising efforts with the county, state, private foundations and our borough council to establish a potential long term maintenance fund and begin to discuss the funding of any future enhancements to the facility. We also continue to work with the borough and our local politicians to secure needed funding, however we will continue to need your support as well to insure the project is a success. You can personally support our cause by attending our fund raisers, joining our easy to get along with organization at any level and by helping to lobby our local and state officials.
We greatly appreciate any help you may give us in saving this valuable community asset. We would appreciate your support in any number of ways which may include not only financial donations, but also assisting with events.
But most importantly - come out and enjoy the pool!
Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in supporting Dormont Pool.
