The Splash Bash Committee of Tenino has provided a much-needed financial infusion for the city’s quarry pool.
Christina Blacksmith, of the Splash Bash Committee, told the Tenino City Council last week that the committee is donating $8,000 to the pool. The committee is made up of Thurston County volunteers dedicated to keeping the historic quarry pool open.
The pool, located at the Tenino City Park, is a popular summer attraction but has struggled financially the past few years.
Last year, the pool produced more revenue than in previous years but still fell $1,000 into the red.
