TERRE HAUTE Ind. (WTHI)- A local group is continuing its efforts to get a community staple back up and running.

The group Why Make Waves met earlier today to discuss plans for the future of the YMCA pool.

Group leaders have been working with the city for months to get a community pool back up and running.

They're just waiting for negotiations to be worked out before things can move forward.

Why Make Waves has been raising money to help make this goal a reality.

"We are going to do peer to peer fundraising. We are going to do maybe a game night, maybe a city-wide fundraiser. All things are an option, but we need a little more from the city and the Y before we actually plan those events and reserve a venue," said Brenda Williams.

These fundraisers do not have set dates yet.

That's as they're waiting to hear back from the city on a set date whether the pool will or, will not open.

Why Make Waves will be in the Saint Patrick's day parade, and they'll have some exciting news to share at that time with the community.
