PAXTON, Ill. (WCIA) — Dozens of people are fighting to keep a community resource open.
The Facebook group, Save the Paxton Pool, says the pool lost thousands of dollars last year because many fewer passes were sold.
Currently, the pool is only open three hours a day in the evenings, Monday through Friday during the summer.
The group hopes to raise money, spark more interest in the facility and eventually, extend its hours.
The next meeting for those interested in saving the pool is April 22.
Welch says he hopes to plan a big fundraiser to help the effort.
