While studies and repairs will keep the Newton Pool closed this summer. Recreation officials in Hackettstown will welcome residents of Newton, Andover and Green to enjoy their pool. Town officials in Newton have coordinated with the Newton School District to provide a bus and certified driver. Thor Labs has agreed to donate $12,000.00 to cover gas and transportation expenses so the bus ride to Hackettstown will be free. The bus will run Monday through Thursday in July and August. The only expense Newton Pool users will have is the admission cost to Hackettstown's Pool. This is a very nice example of how two towns, a school district and a local business worked together to benefit the community. I hope people who would normally enjoy the Newton Pool see this as good news and fill up that bus.
