Money is being raised to keep the Bucyrus city-owned swimming pool open.

The effort is to benefit not only local residents, but out-of-town visitors.

Aumiller Park pool is scheduled to remain closed this summer due to city budgetary constraints.

But Dick Leuthold Jim Pigman are leading a fundraising effort with a goal of $25,000 to keep the pool open.

Many tour groups and visitors come to Bucyrus each summer, and Leuthold says having the pool closed in such a nice park would be an embarrassment to the city.

Donna Bauer, Director of the Bucyrus Tourism and Visitors Bureau at 103 South Sandusky Street is doing her part by putting a bucket in a kiddie pool on the front sidewalk to collect donations, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week from 10 am to 2 pm.

You can also call Dick Leuthold at 419-562-8444, if you would like to contribute. 

The goal is to raise enough money to operate the Aumiller Park pool from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
