Friends of Brookings-Harbor Aquatic Center

We believe an indoor aquatic center offering active recreation and fitness programs affords countless avenues to address community wellness needs including concerns about health (obesity and chronic diseases), the economy (job creation), and society in general (after-school activities and opportunities for the disabled and seniors to remain active despite physical limitations).

Dean Cantwell Memorial Scholarship Fund


(2013) Dean Cantwell grew up in Iowa and moved to Crescent City in 1992. He retired from a career as a contractor building major subdivisions in the Monterey and Santa Cruz area during the housing development boom. After spending years working in relatively affluent communities as a laborer, albeit a successful one, Dean developed a passion for helping young people improve themselves through education. Dean began contributing each year to Rotary's annual Third Grade Dictionary Program---whereby each 3rd grader in Del Norte County is given their own dictionary---and through Rotary's annual award of scholarship monies to deserving high school students. As the years passed, Dean developed a dream to create a four-year scholarship award to one deserving young person from Del Norte. Tommy and Donna Sparrow have honored and fulfilled Dean's most precious wish by making this scholarship a reality.
