Clarke Hammond passed away on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 66 years of age. Having served on the FBSP Board as Fun and Fundraising Chair, Clarke was a charismatic guy who would light up any space he was in and we had the pleasure of having him on our team. He will be missed at the New Year’s Polar Bear Plunge, but rest assured, we will be thinking of him.
OK, it’s not the last cleaning ever, but it is the season finale cleaning event for Barton Springs Pool this year.
For this last event, we’ll dispense with the red tape and shift sign-up rigamarole, but we’re expecting GREAT BIG flippity turnout from the good folks at Benchmark Recovery, Austin Youthworks, and our stalwart supporters at Austin Beer Garden Brewing Company, so we look forward to seeing you at the Springs!
Volunteers can help clean Barton Springs Pool by push-brooming shallow end gunk and algae into the giant sucking vortex at the pool drain, scrubbing the pool side steps and wall, yanking weeds from the lovely lawn, removing /clipping/destroying/napalming Ligustrum from the (poison-ivy infested area behind the diving board), aerating and weed the gardens, spreading mulch, and other do-goodie type stuff to help tend the pool area. All this hard work helps contribute to the cleaning, well-being, and beautification of Barton Springs Pool.
Bring your happy and helpful attitude, and we’ll have pizza and snacks, refreshments, and one amazing immersive experience for giving a little back to Barton Springs!!!
