Marland Heights pool donations

March 28, 2014
The Herald-Star
Sizable donations have arrived recently from Columbus, Washington, D.C., Illinois, and even as far as California to help save the Margaret Manson Weir Memorial Pool at Marland Heights Park. The donations were announced Thursday by, from left, Doug Jackson, Iris Himmelrick and Renee Lemal of the Marland Heights Community Association. “There’s been a building momentum since spring is arriving. We’re grateful for the growing interest in our cause and fundraising events,” Jackson said. MHCA members have planned a quarter auction to benefit the Marland Heights Save the Pool Fund. The auction is set for 1 p.m. Saturday at the Millsop Community Center in Weirton. Doors open at noon, and admission is $5. More than 20 vendors are expected to participate, and the event will include food, beverages, a Chinese auction and a 50/50 drawing. Preliminary clean-up and work to prepare the pool for renovations will begin April 5, weather permitting. Volunteers are welcome to join in the effort. Anyone interested in contributing to the Save the Pool Fund can send their tax-deductible donation to: Marland Heights Community Association, 3951 Palisades Drive, Weirton, WV 26062, or contact the MHCA via Facebook. — Shae Dalrymple
