Fundraiser underway for Sewickley Twp. pool

The staff of the Crabapple Park & Pool in Sewickley Township wants to be able to raise an American flag at the pool and has launched a campaign to raise about $2,000 to install a 20-foot aluminum flag pole at the facility, Sewickley Township recreation officials said.

For a $50 donation to the “Raise the Flag at Crabapple Pool” campaign, the public will be able to have a plaque inscribed with a dedication to someone or in memory of a person or family. The plaques also can recognize a business or organization. The plaques will be placed at the base of the flag pole, said Marty Ponebshek, an assistant pool director.

The Sewickley Township Supervisors last month approved the fundraising campaign. In order to raise enough money to pay for the flag pole and necessary hardware, the Sewickley Township Recreation Board needs to receive donations for 40 plaques.

The Crabapple Park used to have a flag pole which was erected by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Herminie, Ponebshek said.

Those interested in paying for a plaque at the flag pole at Crabapple Park should contact Janet Schork, Sewickley Township recreation director, at 724-835-1087.
