THE CITY OF BEACON POOL AT THE UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT CAMP
The City of Beacon Recreation Department is hopeful to once again have its public pool open this summer for area residents to enjoy. Due to budgetary constraints the community pool at University Settlement Camp was closed last year. We have an exciting opportunity to once again have a much needed recreation resource available to the residents of Southern Dutchess and Putnam Counties.
With the support of community residents, we can and will have our pool open. The program is simple, purchase a Beacon Swim Club Family Membership and/or make a donation in support of the pool. If 200 families in the community purchase a family season pool pass we will have the funds necessary to operate our public pool at the University Settlement Camp.
If the City of Beacon can not reach our goal of 200 families or their equivalent by May 20th, all membership fees will be refunded. After sufficient funds to operate the pool have been raised, there will be no refunds.
It is essential that 200 family memberships and/or equivalent sponsorships and donations, be sold before May 20th if the pool is to open for the season—so purchase your membership now!
