This past Wednesday May 25th, the new Martin Luther King Jr Wading Pool and the fence, Moving in the Right Direction, were unveiled to the public during a ribbon cutting and dedication.
Members of the public, the planning committee, City Council, students at MLK Elementary School, and the Mayor all gathered in the warm sun to celebrate this wonderful project. After speeches from Charlotte Katzenmoyer, Natalie Lascek, Béatrice Coron, and Mayor Gray, the ribbon was cut and students flooded the now-dry pool for refreshments and conversation.
It was a joy to watch the city and the public come together to celebrate this revitalizing project. We can't wait for the pool to open in June when the new fence will get a chance to really shine.
This project was funded by generous donations from the public. To see a list of donors click here.
