Just Add Water
In 2017 the City of Sullivan was forced to close the only pool in the county due to needed repairs and lack of funds. The pool was originally built in 1963 and was done so largely in part by volunteers and donations. Securing it in the hearts of Sullivan residents for years to come. It was a sad day for our City to shut it down, and residents still feel that heartache.
The City of Sullivan challenges FFC innovators to provide out of the box ideas on how to raise funds or attract potential investors to our greatly needed and wanted 2.3-million-dollar pool renovation.
