The Stoughton Recreation Board swimming pool committee held a successful fundraiser on Apr. 11 at the Legion Hall. Farrell’s (Insurance) Agency who bought out Tramer agencies in December 2013, collaborated with the town to help out with this worthy cause.

Over $20,000 was raised to go towards the cost of a new pool liner which will be about $80,000.
