Community Sponsors Dive In! to Support Brown Pool
With the tremendous community support generated through the 2015 SPLASH and 2016 Dive In! campaigns, Brown Pool has received tremendous support from organizations and individuals in the community. Beginning with the Pool Survey sent out in early 2015, residents and businesses alike expressed overwhelmingly that they want to see Brown Pool continue to operate and thrive in Pendleton. Major sponsors in 2015 and 2016 have helped provide for healthy operations and improvement to the Pool.
Community Hospital Anderson renewed its major "Fun Slide" sponsorship for the 2016 season, which it views as an important opportunity to encourage physical activity and improved health in Madison County residents, according to Director of Marketing, Leah Campbell. We are fortunate to have Community Hospital and these other tremendous organizations as supporters!
Major Brown Pool sponsors:
- Community Hospital Anderson: 2015 & 2016 Fun Slide sponsor
- St.Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital: 2016 Concession Stand sponsor
- Pendleton Kiwanis: 2015 & 2016 Sunscreen sponsor
- Ring Construction: 2016 Locker Room sponsor & 2015 donor
- Payne Technologies: 2016 Sound System sponsor
We would also like to thank these additional organizations and individuals who have sponsored and donated to Brown Pool this year: Quack Daddy Donuts, Sisson Family Dentistry, Indiana International School of Diving and Rockhill LawnCare LLC, Pendleton Gamma Pi Chapter of Tri Kappa, Studio Fit, State Farm Amy Turner, JAGS Restaurant, The Trading Post for Fiber Arts, Lions Club of Pendleton, Clipzone Salon & Spa and The Salon Professional Academy, Intersect Inc., Fredericks Inc. Contractors
Saturday, June 25, 2016, Pendleton Swim Club (PSC) ran its first swim meet in Pendleton since 2010. Co-hosted by Power Aquatics, the Stars & Stripes Invitational also included Yorktown Swim Club, Lawrence Swim team, and Greenfield Community Aquatic Team. The event included more than 70 events in over 7 hours of competition in sprints, distance races, and relays and hosted 155 swimmers, 14 coaches, 14 officials, and over 400 spectators.
Londa Bennett, Brown Pool Manager was thrilled with the event, sharing that the event was great for the Pool and she received overwhelmingly positive responses from both teams and spectators. "We'd love to host a meet again next year," says Bennett.
Brown Pool was well represented by three staff members who are part of Pendleton Swim Club:
- Lifeguard Madison Brand compiled the most points and won her age group of 15 and up by placing 1st in the 100 Backstroke and 400 Freestyle and 2nd in the 400 Medley Relay, 400 Freestyle Relay, and the Open 1,500 (30 lengths of the pool, which she swam in just over 20 minutes!). Trooper that Madison is, she also worked as a lifeguard that night at the 1820 Society-sponsored Free Swim event!
- Lifeguard Noah Miller set new personal best times in three events: 100 Breaststroke, 100 Freestyle, and 50 Freestyle.
- Head Lifeguard Jake Childress (AKA "The Bouncer") coached the PSC team during the meet and worked as a guard along with Madison at the Free Swim that night.
What a great group! (Complete PSC results can be found in the June 29, 2016 issue of The Times-Post.)
Special thanks to those companies and organizations that sponsored and supported the Stars & Stripes Invitational, including Quack Daddy Donuts, Ricker's, Fredericks Inc. Contractors (James Brand), and Edward Jones.
Have you visited Brown Pool lately?
With sponsorship dollars and community support, Brown Pool has made some exciting changes! In 2015, we expanded the deck area, added more and better landscaping, put in a new, more attractive fence, painted the Fun Slide and other areas, added new umbrellas and tables, and reworked the entrance for better flow. This year, with the continued support of our sponsors (see box at right), we've updated the men's and women's locker rooms, made major repairs to improve the pool circulation, upgraded the sound system, and continue to add more activities and events. Brown Pool and Falls Park appreciate the support of all of our sponsors and the community! If you would like to support the ongoing operations and improvement of these great community assets, please consider making a donation.
