Kinsmen Pool close to reopening

Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit votes in favour of lease agreement

Sarah Ferguson Fort Erie Times SARAH FERGUSON Fort Erie Times The Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit has voted in favour of an agreement to lease the Kinsmen Pool from the Town of Fort Erie. From left are underwater recovery unit members, property chairman Mike Larocque, president Donna Wood and past president Jim Traves. Children could be splashing around in the Kinsmen Pool as early as this summer. TheFortErieUnderwater Recovery Unit recently voted in favour of an agreement that will see the Town of Fort Erie lease the pool to the non-profit organization. ?Our members saw this as an opportunity to provide a need in the community that hasn?t been fulfilled for a few years,? said the recovery unit?s past president, Jim Traves. TheFortErieUnderwater Recovery Unit, which currently has 43 members, was founded in 1961 to facilitate the recovery of people from area watercourses. While the underwater recovery unit can still provide the public with underwater search and rescue operations, the club has since evolved into ?a social non-profit club,? Traves said. Members of the underwater recovery unit feel its important to lease the pool from the Town to give Fort Erie residents a safe place to learn how to swim. ?We feel the unit has the opportunity now and in the future to play a bigger part in the community,? Traves said. See Page 3
