The Hollis Municipal Pool was shut down because it became unsafe for swimmers and numerous components need to be replaced. Several fund raisers have been used to raise about $43,000 over the summer. The estimate to repair the pool is $100,000. There are currently containers located at the pool to donate cans and paper goods for recycling. There have been two garage sales and a softball tournament that helped to raise money. Sandy Creek Veterinary Care is doing their part to help raise funds for the pool. All proceeds of these fundraisers go to the Hollis Municipal Pool Project thanks to our local sponsors. These include: Hollis Livestock Commission, Dixion-Kirchoff Inc, Body Work Gym, and Wrights Agri Services, and Broadway Liquor and Beer to Go). It is important to small communities to have recreational options for the local youth.
