Poolside Holiday

Friday, July 20, 2012

An estimated 550 people celebrated the July Fourth holiday by visiting the Monett Municipal Swimming Pool for the free swim day offered by the Monett Area YMCA. Shortly after the pool opened at 1 p.m., shown above, swimmers began arriving. A YMCA spokesman said the day was "very very busy" for the 13 employees and lifeguards staffing the pool, but it was a service the YMCA was pleased to offer. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff]
