Calling it a ‘no-brainer’, Denny Simonavice said it was a natural for the Meijer corporation to assist the Bullitt County Parks and Recreation Department after reading about the problem getting swimming pools open for the season.

Simonavice, store director for the Preston Highway operation, said the $5,000 check to the county was an effort to help get the pools open this summer. He said the company regularly donates to community causes and the Bullitt County situation was a natural.

Simonavice presented the check recently to Bullitt Fiscal Court and parks director Kendall Grant.

Through the Meijer contribution and other donations of time and services, the Maryville and Mount Washington pools opened and work continues on the Shepherdsville pool.
