New Concord Pool
The J.W. & M.H. Straker Charitable Foundation focused some of its giving on supporting community pools in the Spring 2021 grant cycle.
Foundation Executive Director/President Susan Straker Holdren feels strongly that children need to learn to swim. In the summer of 2021, she also felt it was imperative that children have a safe outdoor place to play.
A Straker grant helped the New Concord community pool open for business this summer. From painting the pool walls and base to the Dog Days of summer, community members enjoyed the facility. The village trained lifeguards and offered swimming lessons. In addition, it was a place for community members to exercise…and have fun!
