KOSTER New teachers to begin work Graydon Pool (continued from page 5) $10 million proposal, wants to increase the effectiveness of water filtration and purification without installing rectangular concrete pools. This group points out that the water quality has markedly improved, while opponents claim algae and other problems remain a problem and that keeping Graydon as it is will not deal with dwindling membership. Both groups have fielded large numbers of supporters at public council meetings and are diametrically opposed to each other’s plans. The Ridgewood Pool Project says that Graydon’s negative water quality and limited recreation facilities have become a detriment in attracting members and in attracting new residents to Ridgewood, while the Preserve Graydon Coaltion says the multi-pool complex would become an expensive eyesore and “white elephant” and might not be economically viable in a changing economy, with rectangular competition-style pools already available in neighboring Glen Rock and indoors at the Ridgewood YMCA-YWCA at reasonable costs. The Ridgewood Board of Education has accepted a gift of $2,684 from the Orchard Home & School Association. The money will be used to purchase cement to pave the walkway on the amphitheater side of the Orchard School. Della Rica & Sons, Inc. of Glen Rock will carry out the paving.
