Pool opens for the season

GRETCHEN MENSINK LOVEJOY/CHATFIELD NEWS The finishing touches were being put on the new Chatfield municipal swimming pool on Wednesday, June 5, in preparation for its unofficial opening on Friday, June 7. The weather has been warm enough to make the water seem very inviting — swimmers anticipate trying out the two-story slide and giving the crocodile in the middle of the pool a go. The pool dedication will be held on Thursday, June 13, at 6 p.m. with free swimming until 9 p.m., plus games, prizes and lots of fun.
