Free Swim Days

June 22-August 14
The Dotty Olson Swimming Pool located in Scott Valley has just announced its Super Splash Free Swim Day.   Beginning Monday, June 22, 2015 the afternoon recreational swim, held from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. each weekday, will be FREE!

In an effort to make the pool more accessible to the children in the community, the City of Etna agreed to allow businesses and members of the community to sponsor Free Swim Days for a $100 a day, which is substantially less than what it costs the City to support such a day.  “The members and businesses in the community have really stepped up to show their support of the pool,” commented City Council Member, Lori Fleck.  “We’ve been so thrilled with the support, that we’re launching the program and are optimistic that we can get enough sponsors to have the entire summer filled with free swimming for our children.”

For those interested in sponsoring a Super Splash Free Swim Day, they can contact the Etna City Clerk at 530-467-5256.  “We’re asking people to get creative,” said volunteer Marnia Brownell.  “Get together with family, friends, other business or even your book club.  If everyone chips in a little, you can sponsor a free swim day, and the kids win.”

The Dotty Olsen Pool is open for its Super Splash Free Swim Days weekdays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.  June 22 through August 14, 2015. Grab your kids and come join the fun!

Save the Fair Meeting Scheduled for January 29

The 10th District Agricultural Association will be hosting an informational meeting about the fair industry, the “state of our Siskiyou Golden Fair”, including fair history, recent changes and planning for the future. The fiscal crisis in California triggered the elimination of all state support in 2011, almost $300,000 including cash and services for the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds. Other fairgrounds around the state are working to become self sustaining using Joint Powers Agreements or 501C3 non-profits as the governing body. We have the opportunity to explore what will work best in Siskiyou County.

The meeting will be held in Winema Hall on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 starting at 6:00 pm.

“The fair is an important part of our community” stated Fair CEO Cliff Munson. “This meeting will be the starting point for further exploration into saving the Siskiyou Golden Fair.”

For more information, contact the fair office at 842-2767 or info@sisqfair.com. The 2013 Siskiyou Golden Fair “A Birthday Bash!” will run August 7-11, 2013 in Yreka.
