LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Community members came together Saturday to get an update on Veterans Memorial Pool while supporting businesses in the neighborhood.
The Taste of Campbell Road was an opportunity for the public to learn about the progress being made in the renovation of Veterans Memorial Pool. The day started off with the recognition of generous donors and was followed by a tour of the construction site.
Businesses located nearby the pool also took part in the event, offering special discounts to customers who donated to the Veteran’s Memorial Pool Campaign.
Those leading the campaign are looking forward to the way the new pool is going to impact the community.
“I see a lot of people just walking these sidewalks again, riding their bikes again and ending up at the pool at some part of their day,” Campaign Manager Jacob Sciammas said. “We need community spaces like that pool.”
The pool is expected to be open to the public in July.
