Renovations have begun on the Hammond Hills Suburban Club’s pool.
“This really is a community project,” said club board vice president Sandy Zeller during a ceremony held at the pool Saturday.
The pool was built in 1960, on land donated by the Burkhalter family and Hammond Hills Company. Over the years, it has become home to the CSRA Swim League and has created many memories for area families, said Laura Lusk, board president.
“Some families go back four generations with this pool,” added Zeller.
The renovations will help ensuring that the pool continues to serve families for generations to come, she said.
Construction is expected to be complete in March. The pool is open each year from mid-May to mid-September, said Lusk.
The new pool will feature black and gold tile, a vortex slide, deck jets and six swim lanes.
Legacy bricks are being sold for $100 each, with $81 going toward the renovation cost. The bricks will be placed on the main walkway to the pool.
The club is also having a membership drive. The club’s membership is limited to 250 families, but people don’t have to live in Hammond Hill or in North Augusta to become a member.
Those interested in purchasing a brick should contact Zeller at (803) 819-0410. For membership information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
