The final parts for the pool repair will be delivered prior to Monday March 7th, with installation to be completed mid-week of March 7. We anticipate the Pool will be in full operation by March 12, 2015. Pool repairs were necessary due to the failure of the filtering system. The costs to replace the filter are anticipated to exceed $20,000, but a large sum if not all costs will have been reduced by gracious donors. Currently, the PORTA Pool Fund at the National Bank is holding $14, 149.41 in donations for repairs. Upcoming fundraisers include a Trivia Night on March 13th at Roots and the PORTA Foundation annual Fundraiser on April 16, 2016. The PORTA Board of Education appreciates all the support and looks forward to continued support in upcoming fundraising events.
