"Double Your Donation" Community Challenge for the Swim Center
Mar 24, 2021
By Friends of Lopez Island Pool
Local Residents Offer $35K Challenge
FLIP is thrilled to announce that local residents Christine Kerlin and Tim Madison have set up a challenge: They will match all gifts received between now and April 15th, up to a total of $35,000, to go toward the campaign to build a community Swim Center here on Lopez.

Let’s turn $35,000 into $70,000.
Join us in this Challenge and DOUBLE your donation at www.lopezislandpool.org/donate

Christine has been a longtime FLIP supporter and volunteer for several years. Christine and Tim shared, “We have dreams: Kids will learn to swim, have a lifetime skill, and be safe in the water. All of us will have a place to meet and enjoy healthy recreation together, year-round. Those of us who need the therapy of warm-water exercise will find it. Our professionals and volunteers who conduct water rescue will have local training. That’s what we want for all Islanders. Before moving to Lopez, we went to the Y for an early-morning swim - let’s have that opportunity again! There is no better time to do it than now. It is on our list to stretch and help get construction started this year. Please join us!”
