On Monday, the School District of Milton accepted a donation of $45,844 from the Friends of Milton Pool, Inc. The donation will be used to expand the bleacher capacity from 450 seats to 550 seats in the new pool.
Interim Superintendent Rich Dahman stated: “The school district is very appreciative of this generous donation, which will enhance the experience for our swimmers and their parents and supporters.”
The donation will be formally accepted at the board of education’s Aug. 26 meeting.
The Friends of Milton Pool organization intends to continue their fundraising efforts beyond this initial donation to enhance or upgrade the amenities, such as the sound system, scoreboard and starting blocks.
The new pool is scheduled to be done by fall 2021.
