Save Christmas Run Swimming Pool was just one weapon in the fight to keep Wooster's oldest pool open after city leaders had voted to close it during a budget crunch.

The group has raised $80,000 though donations from complete strangers across the country but also from traditional small moneymakers, like bake sales.

Mark Gooch led the charge to create the Facebook group and organize neighbors to take part.

The residents' success in keeping their pool open is now drawing calls from other communities, wanting to know how they were able to get community dollars in this tough economy.
