Joyce Brenny, St. Joseph
As a lifelong resident of the St. Joseph area, I have always wondered why St. Joe did not have a community pool or water park. Recently I was informed of a group that was meeting to brainstorm about a splash pad in St. Joseph; to say I was excited to join this group was an understatement! I could not help but think, finally, St. Joe might have something fun like a splash pad or water amenity for the community to enjoy as well as to be very proud of.
My husband Todd was also eager to join the group and share the fact he grew up in Foley, a town with a community pool. Todd often talks of how much he enjoyed the pool as a child, sometimes just for fun, but also for summer swimming lessons. Todd’s grandmother and mother also enjoyed the pool for water aerobics. To have a water amenity in St. Joseph would be wonderful, bringing community, family and friends together for fun and exercise. I hope we show our community pride and fully support the water amenity project. After all, I think its time we catch up with Foley.
