As of the summer of 2019, the daily operations and decisions pertaining to the Larwood-Shaw Memorial Pool have been taken over by the Town of Porcupine Plain; the board members will continue on as a Fundraising Committee only.
We thank the community for their concern and inquiries regarding the status of the Swimming Pool. At this time, however, there is no further update available. We can advise that it is the intention of the Town and the LSMP Fundraising Committee to continue our efforts to repair and reopen in as short a time as possible and that, once further information is available, we will advise the community accordingly.
The Larwood-Shaw Memorial Pool Board Members regret to inform our community of the closure of our facility for the 2019 season. It was a difficult decision, one we did not take lightly; but, due to unforeseen circumstances, we felt this was the best decision. The Board is taking this time to regroup and focus on a plan of action. More information will be available within the coming weeks.
Volunteer efforts will continue with fundraising to ultimately replace our outdoor swimming pool. All donations received to date will be put towards this major project! The Board welcomes anyone to join in such efforts by becoming a board member — to ensure this project’s success, we require the support and help of many!
The Board recognizes that this announcement is not a welcome one and will upset and inconvenience many community members. There are no words to truly express our regret in having to make this decision, but the circumstances are out of our control. Your understanding and patience as we sort through the details is greatly appreciated.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Nicole at 306-813-7299.
