In September Oberlin Farms Demolition & Recycling of Williams County removed 4-H Camp Palmer pool. Currently the concrete of the former pool is being recycled into 500 tons of stone that will be reused on roads throughout camp. The Camp staff & board are very thankful for the excellent work of Oberlin and their $9500 in service donation.
In October Patterson Pool Company of Columbus, Ohio began their work on the construction of the new pool. Pool footers were poured, steel work completed and on November 3 the concrete floor was poured. Work will continue until the pool is completed before the summer 2015 swimming season.
Thanks to many individuals, commodity groups, 4-H clubs, foundations, grants and corporate support over $285,000 of the $495,000 of the needed funds for the pool project have been raised. We are seeking continued donations for this project. 4-H Camp Palmer, Inc. serving eleven counties in northwest Ohio is a non-profit 501 ©3.
One of our current programs to support the pool project is our brick fundraiser. Individuals or companies can still purchase an 8” by 8” dedicated brick. These will be added to our flag pole patio by June of 2015. For more information on ways to support 4-H Camp Palmer pool project or order your memorial brick please call 419-237-2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
