99 swimmers at Burwood pool, but who’s counting?

The Burwood Pool Parents, that who. And having persuaded the Norwood Recreation Commissioners to keep the pool open, it’s a pretty safe bet they’ll be keeping very accurate attendance records this summer. This past Friday, Rebecca Schaen gave us this report on the pool opening to share with our readers:

“We have just enjoyed our first full week at Burwood. The first day, it took a while for the pool to get open (inspections and such), and the next two days it stormed, but this past Thursday was great, and today we had our Opening Day picnic. We served more than a hundred hotdogs! Also, Thursday, today, and for the next 2 days (yes, we actually get to swim this weekend!) Burwood will be open until 7:00 pm. Of course, when Waterworks opens, we have to go back to the normal hours. Thursday we counted 99 swimmers!!”
