As the nights cool, bid farewell to the pool--and hello to Golden City Days!
The Rossland Pool closes next week after a great summer season! Thanks to the Pool Staff 2013 – Marlee Kanigan, Julian Zimmer, Lauren Bergen, Amy Davidson, Christine Cook, Brogan Pastro, Alex Reid, Lochlan Dorman, and Dylan Johnston – for all their enthusiasm, hard work, professionalism and dedication. The Rossland Pool and the community are fortunate to have such amazing young people running our well-loved, community pool.
The Pool will celebrate its last day of swimming on Wednesday, August 28th with a fun day of events, including a movie night in the Park, next door. From 1:00-7:30pm, the Pool will offer Public Swimming, with a BBQ starting at 5:30pm. The Staff will have hotdogs, fruit, ice-cream, juice, pop and chips available for sale if you’re hungry. The movie starts at 8:00pm in the Park beside the Pool. Please bring a lawn chair, sleeping bag or blanket to stay warm and enjoy a family friendly movie once it becomes dark enough. The movie will cost $2.00 for season’s pass holders and $3.00 for others. If you haven’t enjoyed a swim this summer, don’t delay…..one more week and the Pool is closed!
