The benefit is sponsored by the Ireton Booster Club with very special thanks to Houlton Auction LLC for organizing the auction. We hope you'll join us.

The Ireton Community Swimming Pool was completed in 1989 after an intense fundraising effort by the Ireton community spearheaded by the Booster Club. "Operation Splash" raised more than $200,000 in 9 months and the pool opened to the public on Friday evening, August 4, 1989.

For 25 years, the Ireton Swimming Pool has provided fun for "kids of all ages" along with swimming lessons, water aerobics, pool parties and more.

But after a quarter century, our pool is "feeling its age". In order to maintain the pool and to reduce future expenses, we hope to raise enough through the Benefit Auction, Bake Sale and Burger Feed to purchase a solar cover, winter cover and reel and to pay for concrete work to repair the decking and to fix a crack in the wading pool. Any excess funds will be used for additional maintenance and expenses.

How Can You Help?

There is no limit to what will sell so use your imagination!

2. Attend the auction and bid on items. The auction list will be updated as information becomes available. Bidders are needed!

The Rescue Squad donated the first $1,000 to kick off the fundraising campaign. They have also offered to donate $500 for each resident who joins the squad and completes the necessary training. So if you would like to serve your commmunity as a member of the Rescue Squad, take advantage of this offer!!!
