The fundraising society would like to extend an enormous thank you to the community of Vanderhoof and surrounding areas for supporting this project - what an accomplishment! Thank you for taking part in our many events, dropping money in the fish bowls, doing fundraisers, donating birthday money, donating in memory of, posting on our site, and giving words of encouragement - all of these things brought us to our fantastic community fundraising goal of $500,000! A special thanks to Nak'azdli for recognizing the regional importance of this project. We're excited to be swimming soon!

 

Donations are still welcome and will be accepted - all money collected will be going to the pool.

 

Thank you!

 

In addition to everyone who supported the referendum, took part in fundraisers and supported the aquatic centre in different ways, a number of local businesses, families, and individuals have joined a special club! Not sure what these fish mean? Check out the community brochure!
