Mark your calendars for September 25, 2021. The Swimming Hole is kicking off a year of fundraising with an exciting event featuring music, Olympic athlete speakers, live auction, and amazing food!
We are looking for your help to support the capital campaign! There are so many wonderful options to be involved, we are looking for stories and images about your experiences with The Swimming Hole, unique items or experiences to be auctioned off at the September 25th event, financial contributions, community ambassadors, and volunteers.
We will be featuring the personal stories of our community members throughout the year. See below for Antoine Brechu’s wonderful story and call to action. Stay tuned to The Swimming Hole’s Website, Instagram, and Facebookpage for more details on how you can help maintain the home #wherewaterlives.
Dear Fellow Swimming Hole Members,
Did you know that The Swimming Hole Nonprofit Community Pool & Fitness Center was the key community infrastructure that sealed the deal for my family and me to move to Stowe eight years ago? And as an ex-ski racer turned competitive swimmer in my late teens, having a world class pool near my home has been a joy and privilege. This year This Swimming Hole is proudly celebrating its 20th Anniversary and it needs our support to complete necessary capital improvements and repairs to ensure another 20+ years.
This is why The Swimming Hole will be organizing some exciting fundraising events through the coming year, some of which will include you sharing stories of what The Swimming Hole has meant to you over the years. Your contributions will secure its continuation for all of us and generations to come. We hope that you will be a willing contributor whether sharing what The Swimming Hole has meant to you and/ or a welcome financial contribution in the coming year as we lay out the many opportunities to participate.
For me, The Swimming Hole has provided such a consistent high-quality experience for my family, from being the perfect place for my son to learn to swim, to helping me in recover from ACL surgery, to allowing me to train for local and international triathlons. I look forward to supporting it this year.
I hope you will join me in ensuring the future and the quality of this amazing resource.
