Porter Dedication at Safford Pool


Beginning at the Safford Pool this summer, patrons will now have the convenience of filling their water bottles with a newly installed drinking fountain and water bottle filling station. 

Mrs. Joyce Porter, wife of the late Robert Porter, made a donation on behalf of her late husband for installation of a drinking fountain and water bottle filling station at the Safford Pool.  Mr. Porter was the Public Works Director at the time of constructing the new pool in the late 2000s.  Mr. Porter was an integral part of getting the swimming pool constructed and was also proud of the fact that he was the first person to take a ride down the new slide, which was a new addition that the previous pool did not have.  

The new drinking fountain and water bottle filling station will be a great new amenity to the pool’s patrons this summer and the City of Safford would like to express our appreciation to Mrs. Porter and the Porter Family for their generous contribution.
