Our thanks to everyone who made this possible.   Cox Pools did a wonderful job of designing and installing our pool.  Dothan Awning finished the project with the installation of a screen enclosure.  Pea River Electric COOP got the ball rolling with a long term low interest loan.  Alabama Power Foundation and Wiregrass Construction enabled us to purchase pool wheelchairs.  Enterprise Rotary Club helped with money to continue the project.  And the Wiregrass Foundation Grant gave us the money to finish !!
