Hubbard Community Pool kicks off fundraising effort to replace diving blocks

The Hubbard Community Pool has launched a fundraising effort to replace its current diving blocks. The diving blocks, which are about 20 years old, are showing their age. The Hubbard Community Pool is home to seven local school district’s swim teams, as well as the Kraken Swim Club. The pool also offers swim lessons, an extensive aquatics program and swim parties. Prior to the stay at home order that was issued by the Governor in the spring of 2020, the pool had to spend $125,000 to replace its boiler, which heats the pool. After having been shut down for 77 days due to COVID, the pool is back open again, but at limited capacity. Due to the lost revenue during the shutdown, and the need to replace the diving blocks, pool director Adrienne Poullas decided to launch a fundraising campaign to help speed up the process. One block costs approximately $3,000 to replace. Thanks to the generosity of local donors, the pool currently has enough money to purchase two new blocks. However, there are a total of six that need replaced.
