Plaza Pool is a treasure to our community

It is sad to read articles regarding financial issues at the Alpena Plaza Pool. Our pool is a treasured asset in our community providing healthy activities for all ages. Living in Michigan means we are never more than six miles from a body of water. Learning to swim with qualified instructors can help prevent tragic accidents in our waters. Many seniors participate in exercise classes to help relieve pain. I would encourage anyone who has not been to the pool or may have used it years ago to take a class or swim a few laps.

You will be welcomed by friendly lifeguards who are excited to help you any way they are able.

It would be a great loss to Alpena and surrounding counties if we are unable to financial fund it.
