The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Open swim to be held Bald Eagle Day


To The Eagle:

Every day when my wife Lee and I make our way to the pool for lap swim we give thanks for the great way we have to exercise our no-longer-young-or-healthy selves. What we need is more company.

It’s good that plenty of kids are still enrolling in swimming lessons (a new session begins next week). And thanks to the school's use of the pool in PE each fall, we probably live in one of the most swimming literate communities in the state.

Also one of the safest, thanks to the supervised recreation the pool provides every day.

One way we could improve is for more adults to take advantage of the lap swims at 8:30 a.m., and 5:30 p.m., or water aerobics at 7:30 a.m., and 6:30 p.m. Six punch passes are available this year, providing a way to make a commitment to exercising without getting in too deep (so to speak.)

Remember, the best way to show our appreciation for this great resource is to make use of it. See you at the pool!

PS: There will be an open swim on Bald Eagle Day following the parade.
