Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
26. Work begins on Naturist Legacy Park's new swimming pool
I and my fellow Naturist Legacy Inc. directors chose Urban
to supply and install our new swimming pool. Their product line was high
quality, their prices were reasonable and their workmanship was excellent.
Their willingness to help us overcome the unique regulatory challenges
surrounding our pool project was especially appreciated. We received approval
to construct our pool near the end of March (see the Building
and Pool Plan
). Urban Life owner Clarence Bergen and his crew arrived to begin
installation of our Radiant
pool in the middle of May. Excavation proceeded rapidly. A concrete pad
was poured beside the washroom/shower building for the pool equipment.
After careful measuring and leveling, the insulated structural wall panels
of our new pool were assembled and put in place. Backfilling was to be
provided by Urban Life. However, given our unique needs and Clarence's
robust equipment, it occurred to me that maybe we could do a trade. I and
other volunteers would do the required backfilling ourselves by hand if
he would use his excavator to dig out a number of stumps from what was
to become our new parking lot. Clarence graciously accepted my proposal.
This simple, spur-of-the-moment accommodation saved us many days of back-breaking
work. Clarence wonderfully demonstrated that good entrepreneurs can also
be kind entrepreneurs.
These photographs from my personal collection were taken in May 2012.
