Community meetings on pool decision

   The Valley Recreation Association, which for over 20 years has sought to build a pool and recreation center in the Lower Valley, will hold community meetings to answer questions about their decision to disband.

   "We want to be good stewards of the community's resources," said VRA President Jeff Spencer. "That means making a realistic decision about the financial feasibility of our community supporting a pool and recreation center."

   Meetings will be 7 p.m. May 24 at the Duvall Fire Hall and May 25 at the Fall City United Methodist Church.

   "I really hope people will come and ask their questions," said Spencer. "This is not a decision we reached lightly, but we think it is the responsible one and we want the community to understand our thinking."
