RUTHERFORD POOL IN YPSI.... Summer days are here again!

By Bob Resch. Purple Walrus Press.

Rutherford Pool, 975 N. Congress, in the cool city of Ypsilanti has just
awaken from it's long winter's nap.  With the help of friends and
family it's been dusted off, gardens weeded, a fresh coat of paint
here and there, chairs put back on the pool deck, locker rooms cleaned
up, snack bar stocked and..... voila!!  It's good and ready for
another season of fun in the sun!

There's nothing like the feeling, smell  and sound at an outdoor
public swimming pool. You can't help but feel renewed and revitalized.
Those within walking distance have more than once talked about the
'resort feeling' they get at the pool.

Rutherford Pool is heated and filled with 167,000 gallons of water
along with gleeful screams, crash and splash of cannonballs, the
slippery slope of the slide, smiles that go from ear to ear, and the
overwhelming feeling that FUN is the common denominator.  Kids of all
ages from 3-93 partake on a daily basis.

Program Director, Cathy Thorburn, keeps the events humming along, and
Pool Manager, Eric Rudolph, and his crew of lifeguards do a great job
to insure the public's safety.

The pool opens from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend with
programming for all levels of swimmers as well as exercise classes.
The early season with reduced hours is just about to transition to the
regular season starting June 17. The pool is also
available for rental.  Check for hours of operation, entry fees and
more information at www.forpool.org or call 734-482-4401.
