Today is a great day for a swim! The Hannah Atkins pools (adult and kiddie) are open! I stopped by the grand opening of the Memorial Day weekend pool opening, along with Charles McRae, my Democratic running mate for the 3rd Ward city council. We said hello to Finn, the Dolphin,* and the children began coming in immediately. The lifeguards were on deck, and the water was crystal clear. Due to the recent tragedy, patrols in the area have been beefed up. I spoke with Officer Andrew Crawford, who is on patrol today. The weather is warm, the sky is blue, and the water looked great--when I left for another commitment, the kids were splashing around and swimming gleefully. Popcorn, cold water, and icy Popsicles are being served, and the first 50 children to arrive will receive free swim goggles! Enjoy this beautiful day!
*Don't worry about Finn on this warm spring day--he is outfitted with an air conditioning unit in the headpiece, and a cooling vest--he said he felt just fine!
