Burwood pool, parents featured on Ch. 19 news broadcast

For those of us who missed Channel 19’s 10:00 p.m. news broadcast Friday, Burwood parent Robin Mace sent us this report to share:

Fox Channel 19 news showed up at Burwood pool at about 3:30 on Friday, a half hour before the pool closed. The team was excited that we actually had people there. They filmed the kids swimming in the pool. They interviewed myself and Pat Jones, also a Burwood pool parent.

We both told them how wonderful it is to have our pool this year. I said that if we didn't have Burwood Pool, we would be reduced to a sprinkler in the back yard! I showed them the float that we are working on for the Norwood Day Parade. I told them that the float was designed to thank Norwood for supporting us in keeping Burwood Pool opened.

The news team did a good job. The pool looked so pretty and inviting with all of those kids in it. It was nice that they chose our pool to do a "Beat the Heat" story on that very hot day.
