THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO - November 16, 2019 (LSN) Thousands of city residents have supported and stood up for the children who would like to see Dease Pool upgraded and re-opened in 2020.
These children don't want to trade in their bathing suit for a tennis racquet or pickle-ball paddle. On steamy, hot summer days, they want to splash around with their friends in the cold water of Dease Pool.
This is where they learn to swim just like other children have done since 1911. Administration stated they will gather information from students at McKellar Park School to see want they want. These children have already voiced their opinion through artwork in hundreds of posters they submitted in the "Save Dease Pool" poster contest.
On Monday, Sept. 18th we we will be displaying these posters at City Hall for all to see, beginning at 4 pm. Hopefully, administration and council will view these posters and listen to what these children really want.
The public is welcome to come out and take pictures of more the 200 fantastic posters submitted by children as young as five years old
.We will also be reading and handing out a press release for everyone prior to Monday's city council meeting.
