The Outdoor Pool has been a summer gathering place for Jewish Nashvillians for over 50 years. We often hear with fondness of the female leaders that held court at the pool each Sunday, the multiple generations of families that swim and play together, and folks that hang out there with friends. This summer is no different, and it is so exciting to see so many people at the Pool this summer. The pool area looks the best that it has in years, and we are planning to further invest in the Outdoor Pool Complex.
As part of the Our Community. Our Future. Capital Campaign, close to a million dollars is earmarked for improvements at the Outdoor Pool. Projects include resurfacing the pool, upgrading the locker rooms, improving shade structures, replacing lounge chairs and picnic tables and repurposing the volleyball court for additional uses. We also want to make the entrance a little friendlier and easier to access. We are working on plans now to implement for next summer. If you have suggestions, please email me, Leslie@nashvillejcc.org with your ideas.
And we are making progress inside the building as well. The demolition in the locker rooms has been completed, and through the destruction we can see our vision of open fresh spaces that will better serve our members. We are in that slow phase when the behind-the-wall improvements are taking place, but when we look at the design board of finishes in the lobby, we know there is a bright future ahead,
We have made great progress on the Our Community. Our Future Capital Campaign raising nearly 6.2 million dollars, but we still need your help to reach our $6.5 million goal.
