Save Our Pool. After 35 years, the swimming pool at the Hastings YMCA off 16th Street is in need of a facelift.

Built in 1979 and still plugging along with original equipment, the YMCA's indoor pool has seen sunnier days. The estimated cost for the project is around 490,000 dollars. Ag Processing Incorporation donated 50,000 dollars for the project.

The pool is deteriorating and needs to be upgraded. Director Michael Krings says the pool is leaking 3-inches of water each week. The Y is planning on draining the pool in August.

You can help out by making a donation. Visit HastingsYMCA.net for more information.
