The Summer Swimming Season is Officially Open!!

Mayor Allison Silberberg officially kicked off the start to the summer outdoor swimming season on Saturday, May 28th at the Old Town Pool. She greeted the first swimmers with remarks reminding them about how much fun swimming can be, but also a caution that everyone should know how to swim. If you don’t, sign up for swimming lessons provided by the City.

After officially opening the doors to the pool, the Mayor jumped in the water herself to give some informal swimming lessons to interested kids. And then played water basketball with some other kids to show what a complete athlete she is!!

Check out the pictures taken by the RedBrickTown staff to view the opening ceremony!

AAA will post a video of the event shortly.

Enjoy the fun and the sun at your City pools this summer!
