Some of the Friends of the Gays Mills Swimming Pool members stood proudly near their fundraising thermometer upon hitting their $100,000 goal in July. Pictured (from left) are Kayla Fortney, Kim Knutson, Harry Heisz, Marla Heisz, Amanda Knutson, Tara Heisz, Rebecca Eby, Roseanna Gunderson and Heather Mulholland.
