Annehurst Residents in the Know

The Annehurst Pool is celebrating its 50th birthday this summer! The age and years of use of this neighborhood facility are showing signs of significant updating and repairs must occur to remain operational. The board members of the AVRA have been working diligently to identify and prioritize needs, projects and costs. The list of projects includes basic projects like painting and cleaning to larger, more expensive repairs like replacing roofing, repairing leaks and replacing the pool water heater. These projects will require additional funds to accomplish, as well as the help of our community members to offset labor costs. There will be opportunities for you to contribute with your time or financial gifts over the course of the coming months. To keep everyone up-to-date on the work being done at the Annehurst Pool, a communication will be emailed out, posted on the website and made available through the Annehurst Facebook page on a quarterly basis to share current projects and financial updates about the repairs and updates that are or will be occurring. Please keep an eye out for these updates and reach out to the AVRA Board if you have any questions or would like to become more involved in these efforts.
