The Newcomerstown High School Class of 1970 is challenging all other Newcomerstown High School classes and individuals to make a donation to the "Save Our Pool" fund.

Newcomerstown Village Council voted Feb. 17 on a 5-to-1 vote to close the Cy Young Pool for 2014 due to lack of funding. A group of concerned citizens is meeting regularly to look at ways of funding the pool for 2014. But they need help financially.

In the meantime, the Newcomerstown High School Class of 1970 is challenging other classes and individuals to make donations to the fund to save the pool for the community's youth.

Donations are being accepted at the Dover-Phila Federal Credit Union, 5465 E. State Road, Newcomerstown, OH 43832.
