The pool may be closed for the season, but our work is just beginning. The next few weeks and months will be crucial in determining the fate of our beloved pool. Keep your eye out for future FUNHOP events, and of course, the public forum. Until then, keep those lawn signs up, keep those letters going, and keep telling people why the pool is important to you. On Tuesday, September 10th (rain date September 12th), the university will hold its annual U-Day community picnic in front of Thompson Hall from 3:30 until 6:30. Traditionally, this has been a great family-friendly event with free food and children’s entertainment. Please consider attending this event, and wear your “Preserve the Pool” shirt if you have one. There has been an overwhelming amount of community support over the summer, and let’s keep it going strong into the fall!
