Update: 700 signatures on Burwood pool petitions

Last Thursday (see 4/10/08 blog below), we reported that residents, parents and Norwood students were circulating petitions in a effort to persuade the Recreation Commissioners to reconsider their February decision to close the pool at Burwood Park. This morning, we received emails from two parents involved in the “Please Help Save Our Pool” campaign. They reported that approximately 700 signatures total have been collected; of these, at least 50-60 have been collected by the students. In addition to the petition campaign, the group has been distributing a flyer encouraging community members to attend tonight’s meeting of the Recreation Commissioners at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Center when the signed petitions will be presented.
