Cy Young Pool will be opening at the end of May for the 2016 summer season.

A fund has been established to provide free youth passes to families in need.

In 2016, the preseason price of an individual pass is $50. The goal is to provide at least 75 passes for a total cost of $3,750 by May 16 so that distribution can take place before the pool opens.

Newcomerstown schools and the Newcomerstown Ministerium are assisting in identifying families in need. The plan is that a family may receive only one free individual pass. Families may purchase additional passes; if a family pass is purchased, the cost will be reduced by the price of the free pass. The donor to the fund may suggest a family in need to be considered.

Consider making a contribution to the fund. Make checks payable to: Save Our Pool, checks may be delivered to: Carol Swigert, 5557 East State Road, Newcomerstown, OH 43832, 740-498-5406.
