The Dresden Swim Center is owned by the Longaberger Company and they’re looking to sell it to the Village of Dresden by this fall.
"The village has leased this pool from Longaberger for the past 10 years and now the village is looking to purchase the pool from Longaberger this summer," said Samantha Mizer, Manager of the Dresden Swim Center. "And we’re having a swim meet, Saturday, July 27th as a fundraiser to purchase the pool."
Mizer says this is the first Dresden swim meet and says they’re hoping to make it an annual event. The swim meet starts at 11 a.m. and warm ups start at 9:30 a.m.
"Admission is $5 for spectators but then for swimmers it’s $2 for swimmers, per event. And they can participate in as many events as they want."
You can register to participate in the swim meet by stopping by the Dresden Swim Center at 1330 South Main Street in Dresden.
