BIBLE HILL - Community assistance is required to help Scotia Pool in its latest attempt to secure funds.
Glenda Bower, spokeswoman for the Scotia Pool Users Group, told the Truro Daily News the Bible Hill-based pool has been entered into the Aviva Community Fund online competition by Colchester County Coun. Wade Parker.
The goal is to do well enough, through community votes, to receive between $50,000 and $100,000.
"We are currently in the second round and are hoping to make it to the third round of voting. We currently have 517 supporters but only 1,346 votes and we need to double our votes, which means everybody has to vote, every day," said Bower, adding the latest round of voting ends Nov. 5.
People require an email address to vote and each email address can vote once a day for a total of 15 days.
The third round of the competition runs from Nov. 12 to 26 and then 98 semifinalists will advance to the finals in early December. From there, 30 finalists will be chosen and a panel of judges will decide in January 2013 which project will receive funding.

Bower said more than 26,000 visits were made to the pool during the 2011-2012 budget year. In addition to the online competition attempt to secure funds, a long-term plan is still being developed by interested parties to potentially keep Scotia Pool open.
