By Leslie Sax, Gordon JCC Executive Director
As summer approaches, the Gordon JCC is excited to announce our progress on the Our Community. Our Future. Capital Campaign. We have raised $5.8 million towards our $6.5 Million goal, and we are still going strong. We are immensely grateful for our donors, and so honored that the brick paver campaign resonated with so many, including former Nashvillians now living in Florida! We hope many more will join as donors to help us reach our goal.
We have brought in enough funding from our generous supporters to begin renovation of the Locker Rooms in June. This allows us to take advantage of the summer season and shift our activity to the Outdoor Pool. We will close the Locker Rooms and Indoor Pool for the extensive work that is planned. Finishes have been chosen and we are delighted by the new, soothing, spa-like feel that the Locker Rooms will exude. We know that our members with children are excited about the new Family Changing Rooms, each complete with a restroom and shower, that will allow them to bring their children swimming with ease.
As we move through the summer months, we are continuing to raise money to complete other projects on our list, such as improvements to be made in the Outdoor Pool Complex. We are making our lists and will be surveying our members this summer for their input. We value your perspective as users of the Outdoor Pool and want to be thoughtful as we plan these upgrades.
The amount of gratitude we feel towards our generous donors is hard to express in words and we are looking forward to bringing you more exciting developments along the way as we continue to renovate and refurbish the Gordon JCC.
