Meet Fin - the Holmes Aquatic Center mascot

September 23, 2016
Meet Fin - the Holmes Aquatic Center mascot
 
More than 500 suggestion cards were submitted during this summer’s contest to name the Holmes Aquatic Center mascot.  Suggestion boxes were placed at the Peek Service Center, City Hall, UP Public Library and the pool. In all, 24 cards listed “Fin” or variations like “Phineas,” “Finley” or “Finbo.”  So, Fin it is. 

Because so many people suggested the same name, we chose the name of our contest winner out of a hat.  Eleven year-old Sophie Sutton, who submitted her entry at the library, has received a certificate for a pool party and some other goodies.The other 23 will receive a HAC souvenir cup and t-shirt.  As you can see, both Sophie and Fin spend time at the library when the pool is not open.    

Thanks to everyone for the “fintastic” suggestions!
