Thanks for a great swimming season. There were many positive changes at the pool this year- we hired new pool management who did a great job and introduced the American Red Cross Swimming lessons.
The highlight of the summer was our 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend. We kicked off our festivities by recognizing the original board members and volunteers who built the pool 50 years ago. On Saturday June 30, we held our first Dash & Splash 5K run/walk, after the race 350 swimmers cooled off at the pool for free admission. On Sunday, July 1, more than 600 people enjoyed a second free day at the pool with music, food and games.
Special thanks to community sponsors, local businesses, Friends of the Pool and especially our
patrons. We also appreciate the support from Selinsgrove Borough, Penn Township and Monroe Township.

The Borough Crew will test the leaf pick up equipment in October. The 2018 Fall Leaf Pick Up will begin around the beginning of November depending on the weather and the leaves falling to the ground. Leaves should be raked in piles to the edge of the street, but not into the street and not near any obstacles. Remember, leaf collection cannot be conducted on days of inclement weather or if the leaves become too wet. Do not put limbs in the leaf piles. Limbs can damage and jam our leaf pick up equipment.
Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 4, 2018. Turn your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday, November 3, 2018 and recoup that extra hour of sleep you lost in the spring.

Over the past few weeks there have been a number of black bear incursions into residential areas of Shamokin Dam Borough, most notably the Orchard Hills section and even one on the east side of Routes 11/15. The bears are looking for food sources and homeowners reported bears taking their bird feeders and looking through trash. The State Game Warden has suggested that all bird feeders in the borough be taken in until December, when the bears begin hibernation. He also suggested spraying the top of your trash cans/bags with a mixture of clorox and water when placed curbside for pickup. Any other outside sources of food should be removed. The Game Warden is attempting to trap and relocate this bear family...until they do, it would be wise to follow the advice above. Shamokin Dam's police are keeping an eye out for the bears and any sightings should be reported to the Shamokin Dam Police Department (570-743-2671) and the Game Commission (570-398-4744). While these bears usually turn away from people, it is better to be safe than sorry. State Representative Lynda Culver's office has detailed information available on how to deal with bears and will provide it to anyone interested or follow the link below:
