Luseland has started the process of fundraising for a new pool. The town has one of the last operating centennial pools, which was built in 1967 and is still in use.

Adam Franko is on the Luseland New Pool Committee. He said while the pool is still fully functioning, they are not sure how many more years are left in it, "We're a little concerned on how long we can we get out of the infrastructure. We've been having more and more issues the past few years. It was built in '67, it's time to do an update." They are hoping to start construction within 2 years.

The Committee has a plan in mind, which involves building a new pool in the existing pool's place. Franko said it will be an entirely new pool over top of the old one, "We're going to dig out the old pool and then we'll put in a new pool which is going to mimic the size of that pool. On that side of that, in a 'U' shape, is going to be a bunch of water toys for the kids and a big water slide, it's going to be a real good thing."

A project like this does come with a big price tag. The goal at the moment is to raise $1.2 million to cover the expected costs.

pool fundraiser 3The Committee has already made impressive progress. On Canada Day, the group was able to raise $5,987. While the Marilyn Monroe dress was in town on this past Monday, the Committee set up a BBQ and a 50/50 Draw to bring in donations. The grand total from the day was $26,232. In total, the Committee has around $103,000 in the bank.

Franko said there's no big fundraising events on the horizon but they will still be collecting donations, "We're going to start by approaching the local businesses and the surrounding area and get traction that way."

The idea of a brand new pool in Luseland is stirring up excitement in the town. "We're all really excited, the committee and the town as a whole, to have a project like this. It's always good to have extra things in your small town and the pool brings a lot of people here... I think it's a great thing and we're looking forward to getting it revamped."
