Forks: “Wet End Pool” receives donation from businessman; bond sales start

FORKS — The Quillayute Valley Park and Recreation District is moving forward with selling bonds for construction for a proposed aquatic recreation center.

Supporters of the project have raised more than $120,000 of the $150,000 goal — and received a boost from a dollar for dollar match and donation from Bert Paul, owner of Forks Thrifty Mart, 950 S. Forks Ave.

During October, Paul offered to match money raised for the Quillayute Valley Aquatic and Recreation Center.

Community donations totaled about $6,000, which Paul matched.
