Pool fund meets matching goal

Pool construction work continued with nice weather Monday and Tuesday.Fundraising efforts for amenities at the new Albion Swimming Pool received a big boost during the past three weeks.
More than $40,000 has been donated to the pool fund since Dec. 2, and the local matching fund requirements have been met for a $100,000 Peter Kiewit Foundation challenge grant, well ahead of the Dec. 31 deadline.
That leaves the pool fund in very good shape heading into the end of the year. As of Monday, Dec. 16, the capital campaign had raised $419,942 and stood just $30,692 from achieving the $450,000 overall goal. The campaign will continue until the overall goal is met.
