Volunteers keep pool open year after year

Community

For decades, one local pool has suffered from severe flooding, but always makes it in time to open for the summer.

Officials said it’s all thanks to the help of local volunteers.

Thanks to their efforts, the Cameron City Pool has given people a place to cool off for decades.

Now, thanks to community fundraisers and volunteered time, the pool features new lighting, pumps, filters, and much more.

Pool committee president Bruce Whipkey said the commitment volunteers show toward the pool is truly amazing.

“We’ve had floods for the past two years, which has completely covered the pool area and motes. Water hasn’t made it into the buildings yet, but it’s been close. Flooding means lots of mud and debris to clean up. Thankfully there’s been a lot of volunteers from this area to help bring the pool back. There’s lots of good people in this area,” Whipkey said.

Bruce told 7News he hopes lots of kids come out to enjoy the pool this summer.

Kids four and under are free, while kids 5-18 can get in for $1.

Adults can get in for $2.
