A number of members gathered recently at the Westwood Heights Swim Club, 1144 N. 38th St., Allentown, to celebrate 50 years of serving the community.

In 1960, Kem Katz got the idea to start a pool in his neighborhood when his children were ages 7, 8 and 9.

His challenge was to raise the money, find the land, obtain the clearances, find the right contractor and members, and gather plenty of volunteers.

Katz determined he needed 150 families to give $300 each. Those families would receive a stock certificate.
