The Friends of the Milton Pool group will continue its fundraising efforts for a new pool despite a recent coaching change for the girls swim team.
The organization will host an open house from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the Milton High School Commons during the Milton girls swim invitational.
Committee members will be available to answer questions and lead viewing opportunities during the swim meet.
Former assistant coach Lindsey Hassenfelt took over as head coach after former coach Sheila Price resigned from her position last week.
Price also resigned as the district’s director of nutritional services after allegations of district policy violations, the school district said.
Mike Price, Sheila Price’s husband and president of the Friends group, told The Gazette in an email last week that he and the committee are committed to seeing the project through to completion.
Residents who have vested interests in improving the district’s aquatic facilities started the Friends of the Milton Pool group, Mike Price told The Gazette in June.
The cost of a new aquatics facility with an eight-lane competition pool and therapy pool could reach $10 million, he said. The organization has hosted multiple fundraisers and received a $25,000 pledge from an anonymous donor.
