Koons Pool reports amazing turnaround

After gasping for air a few years ago, Koons Pool has been revived over the last two years by a new group of volunteers and some financial help from Lower Paxton Township.

Pool officers Doug Kepler and Walter Shatto recently told the township parks and rec board that revenues have increased and a bank loan that was guaranteed by the township has been repaid.

Maintenance and repairs to the pool also have increased. This year the three pools were painted and the roofs on two small buildings were replaced. Next year the roof on the main building will be replaced, necessitating a bank loan that Centric Bank has already approved.

Kepler and Shatto described the many new programs that were started in the last two years, including the creation of a swim team, and stated that the pool is in good shape financially.

The board congratulated the new pool leadership for turning the facility around.
