Everyone in the Ypsilanti area knows about the financial problems of the city and how they had to cut funding for the recreation department a couple of years ago. Fortunately the wonderful people of the area have come through to support these community resources. This Sunday, April 30 the friends of the pool will be holding Pennies for the Pool at the Senior Center. If you live in the Ypsi area and you have some spare change go give them a hand. We will be going over and buying a season pass for the family. Rutherford is a great pool and is a great place to spend a sunny summer afternoon. Here is a copy of the e-mail I got with all the information
Sunday, April 30th from 12-3pm (at the Senior Center on Congress at Oakwood) will be your first chance to sign up for passes and swim lessons for this summer. Please check out the price structures below as some things have changed. If you can’t make it on the 30th the pre-season sale will be available on Ypsilanti Pride Day and Memorial Day weekend.
