Whitlock, Jr. of COR Church - AME. Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

Work on Pool 4 is nearly complete
Pool 4 is popular for therapeutic swimming and is expected to reopen at the end of this month. In January, cracks were discovered in the pool's shell during regular annual maintenance. The cracks were repaired before the pool was re-plastered and re-tiled, which impacted its re-opening date, but was necessary to rehabilitate the pool. Take a dip in Pool 1, which is heated to 86 degrees, for therapeutic swimming.
