Craft Show Fundraiser To Benefit Windsor Great Park Pool

NEWPORT NEWS—The Military Spouses’ Society of Virginia will be hold its“Fall Into Autumn” Craft Show on Saturday, September 25 from 10am to 3pm at Windsor Great Park, located at 701 Balthrop Road in Newport News. There will be more than 30 different vendors, food, and music. The event is free and open to the public and donations are welcome.

The Windsor Great Park Pool has been a mainstay of Denbigh since 1965, but it needs funding for renovations. “Our beloved pool, the pool that has given us so much joy over the years and decades, needs our help if it is to open again,” said Sandy Sickles, one of the pool’s longest-standing members and honorary Windsor Great Park Recreation Association honorary board member. “Due to age and unforeseen circumstances, thousands of dollars are needed to upgrade and repair the pool.”

Several fundraisers have already been held by the Windsor Great Park Recreation Association and progress has been made, but the pool still needs help. In addition to monetary donations, they are also gladly accepting bartering services from local businesses, as well as building material contributions and volunteers.

Anyone wishing to support the pool’s rehab mission should contact the Windsor Great Park Recreation Association at WGPRA1@gmail.com or 757-874-5753.
