The Kiwanis Club of Lehigh Acres will officially present a check for $1,625 to Lee County Parks and Recreation Department's Lehigh Acres Community Pool at 8:30 a.m. today, May 1.
The public is invited to attend the event at 1400 West 5th St., just off Williams Avenue and Lee Boulevard. The event will be held on the pool deck.
In partnership with the Lehigh Acres Community Pool Project Committee, the Kiwanis Club helped to sponsor several fund-raising projects as part of the "Make a Difference Day" project held throughout 2012 to enhance the swimming experience in Lehigh Acres.
Dedicated members of the Lehigh Acres Community Pool, The Kiwanis Club of Lehigh Acres and the Lehigh Acres Senior Center joined together to collect private donations and hold fund-raisers.
In addition, Lee County Parks and Recreation Department contributed $2,000 to assist in their efforts to purchase swimming equipment and pool furniture. As a result, more than 40 pieces of brand new furniture and other equipment were purchased and delivered in March.
"Please join the celebration and help spread the news - Lehigh Acres Community Pool is the best," said Linda Harclerode of Kiwanis Club.
