Specialized gift for pool
An added asset was presented for the pool at the Castlegar Community Complex on Nov. 25.
Complementing a water wheelchair the pool had earlier received from the Selkirk Lions Club, another of the $2,000+ units is now available for use.
The chairs look no different than a standard wheelchair, but with sealed bearings and other modifications, are designed for aquatic use.
Ben Poznekoff was on hand to give it a try, he's the one who has been making the most use of the existing chair, almost every day according to pool staff.
The new piece of equipment was made available thanks to a donation from the Columbia Power Corporation.
