Posters to announce the reopening of Aageson Pool have been created by our wonderful children at the Oconto Area Nonprofit Day Care and are being placed at businesses around the City. Thank You to Amy Clough and her helpers at the day care and also all the talented kids – the posters are the absolute best!
Also regarding the Reopening of Aageson Pool, remember the celebration is planned for Saturday, June 6th (rain date June 7th). The schedule will be: Activities for the children from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. Dedication ceremony at 1:00 p.m. Following the ceremony will be free swimming. Also food available – music playing – a luau-themed fun day! This event is being planned by the newly-formed “Friends of Aageson Pool” consisting of Darrell and Sue Anderson, Sheri Groll, Beth Aubut, Dick and Lisa Anderson, Sandy Zoeller, Mike Gibeault, Venna Dreshek, Todd and Lynn Hearley. Thank You “Friends of Aageson Pool” for planning this long-awaited reopening and for the involvement in the future!
So many volunteers have already put in many hours to get the pool ready for this summer, and everyone is very grateful for the time and effort given – all for the sake of our children – and the revival of an important City asset. The overgrown shrubs that turned into trees were cut down by Darrell Anderson, Jerid Anderson, Tim Turecek, Dave Wittkopf, and Dick Anderson. J.J. Liegeois removed and ground the stumps. The entire pool building complex was power-washed by Mike Gibeault, Darrell Anderson, Dick Anderson, and Todd Hearley. The piles of mixed sand and wood chips were removed and placed in a trailer by Curt Arnold and Jodi Bostedt. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, volunteers, for giving of yourselves, for a greater good! Your wonderful efforts are really appreciated!
Also, “Hats Off” to Cynthia Patterson who has been/is planting the entire west roundabout all by herself! Her very colorful mixture of perennials surely will bring joy and a smile to everyone who enters our city limits! What a perfect way to greet visitors and our own citizens! Thank You, Cynthia!
There is now a rack just inside the door at City Hall to the left that will showcase only Agendas for the various meetings involving City government. This information will now be easier to distinguish, and will not get mixed in with our various (also important) informational pamphlets.
Many people are asking for rummage-sale-sign sticks, and it is really appreciated. We will keep the supply going from volunteers who are donating them, so do not hesitate to ask for the sticks. Thank You!
Have A Great Day! And remember, “I never did anything alone. Whatever was accomplished in this country was accomplished collectively.” — Golda Meir
