Reader remembers '30s pool

To the Editor:

What goes around comes around!

I note with interest that Libby is voting on a swimming pool again. I remember how excited several 8-year-olds were in the 1930s when we heard that a real swimming pool was going to be built near the funeral home. This was a real improvement over "Rushers Pond" on Flower Creek which usually dried up when the weather got hot. The other alternative was the Mill Pond in which we were not supposed to swim.

The new pool was where we all learned to swim and dive. Good luck on the vote.
