Inge Ackermann: Impressed by renovated War Memorial pool

To the editor

I want to thank Amherst Town Manager John Musante and Linda Chalfant, LSSE director, for being positive in a recent Gazette about our public swimming pools.

This summer I was pleasantly surprised by the renovated War Memorial pool. I had not yet visited it when my daughter and family and oldest son visited from California in July. In fact, I hadn’t swam there in thirty years. The family urged me to come for a swim and we all spent cooling off in the sparkling waters every afternoon of their stay.

What was a bit surprising was the fairly steep admission fee. Another surprise was the seemingly generous number of lifeguards. Perhaps there could be a re-evaluation of these two situations.

I wish the pool supporters much success and I plan to get a full season pass next summer.
