Brinlee Hill went all out for her deer costume. Her makeup was beautifully done and the costume as a whole was wonderfully creative.

The Friends of the Public Pool and the Masonic Lodge No. 249 held a Halloween party fundraiser at the Frederick Public Pool in Frederick.

Betsy Simmons and Heather Brockriede run the pool and take care of the general upkeep, and they also take care of fundraising events so new elements will be available to future pool seasons.

The purpose for this fundraiser was to raise funds to go towards two slide structures for the pool. One will go at the deep end of the pool and one closer to the shallow end for smaller children. The approximate cost of the two slides will total about $35,000. The party raised $1,000 and the Lodge is matching $1,000.

There was a costume contest held at the fundraiser for all ages:

• Ghostbuster George Guerra and pink troll Paisley Barajas won the 0-5 age group,

• Evil surgeon Kaden Pierce and Abby from NCIS Sadie Jensen won the 6-12 age group,

• Red Power Ranger Kayvon Daniels and ancient demon Taylor Owens won the 13-18 age group, and

• Toothless Kyle Ahkeahbo and Astrid Kerbie Allen were winners from the 19+ age group.

The pool does not make the city a profit. Funds raised during the pool season from renting it out to parties as well as the daily patrons, all goes back into the pool for upkeep and to add new attractions for the next season.

To make a donation, call Heather Brockriede at 580- 305-5534 or Betsy Simmons at 580-305-2654 or make a donation at BancFirst under the name Friends of the Public Pool. All funds will go towards the cost of the slides.
