Inzerillo has been vital supporter of pool

To the editor:

On behalf of the Burnham swimming pool, and everyone connected with the pool, whether it be the workers and the lifeguards and maintenance people who keep the pool in operation, or the Burnham Borough secretaries that take care of the book work, to the many generous donors and patrons, I’d like to thank Vince Inzerillo for his many continuous years of donating to the pool.

I started sending out letters 18 years ago to businesses and individuals asking for donations to help keep the pool open (the pool gets no government or tax money).

I went into Vince’s to get some pizza and Vince came out of the kitchen and said to me “Instead of giving you a money donation, how about I just give you all the pizza you need?”

Naturally, I said that would be great! He’s been doing it for the last 18 years. He’s also made us cash donations over the years and when his wife Karla passed, she requested any memorial gifts be made to the pool.

Needless to say, he’s been a huge reason the pool’s had the funds to keep in operation.

All the things that were said about him in his obituary were absolutely true and I just wanted to make sure that anyone who didn’t know about this pool gesture did!

So, rest in peace, old friend. You truly were a special person and one of a kind.
