It’s starting to feel like summer

In case you haven’t been outside today, it’s REALLY HOT. (This is coming from someone who grew up in South Florida and knows heat when she sees it.) Today’s high is 91 degrees and it’s going to stay warm over the holiday weekend and climb to 95 degrees Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

The good news is, summer is almost here and Dixon pool will open Saturday. The pool is at 1300 Dixon Street.

The hours are:

11:30am – 7:00pm

Open Labor Day, September 5

11:30am -7:00pm

Weekdays from May 31- through June 17

3:00pm – 7:00pm

After June 17

Daily 11:30am – 7:00pm (Monday – Sunday)

The pool is hosting a whole bunch of events this summer that look like a good time for the whole family. There are also swimming lessons offered for different age groups throughout the summer.
