(Harrisburg, PA) – Students, school officials, and community members celebrated the opening of the renovated East Pennsboro Area School District’s natatorium on August 18, 2018. Music by student groups, remarks by superintendent Dr. Donna Dunar, and refreshments highlighted the ribbon cutting event.
The 45-year-old natatorium, located in the East Pennsboro Area Middle School, underwent renovations to address maintenance and comfort issues. Reynolds Energy Services served as prime contractor for the $1.9 million, six-month project.
“The pool has long been a fixture in both the district and the community, and Reynolds Energy Services was pleased to play a part in delivering a facility that will serve East Pennsboro for several decades to come,” said Rick Evans, president of Reynolds Energy Services.
“The restoration and re-opening of the pool is an affirmation of our district’s and community’s commitment to our children’s safety, wellness, and character development,” said Dr. Dunar. “As our students remind us, the sport they love can give back so much to others. In this pool, our students will chase their dreams, pursue their goals, and develop good fitness habits that will last for years to come. And it starts here with the reopening of our pool. Thanks to all who made this dream come true!”
The natatorium renovations included:
- Indirect lighting, timing system, starting blocks, and pool gutter system to absorb waves and reduce water turbulence, all leading to an improved competitive experience
- Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant locker room upgrades to the showers, toilets, and floors
- New bleacher system for spectator comfort
- Fresh paint on all walls, including a hand-painted custom mural.
