Pool Preparations

May 28, 1966, Appleton Post-Crescent
Unlike this post from last year when we said goodbye to the pool for the season:, this year we look at getting the pool ready for summertime bathers.  I have to admit, I never gave much thought to the extensive preparations required to service hundreds of swimmers each day.  Hearken back to the news story of the pool's opening day in 1957 and it states that "Capacity of the Menasha pool, when the two smaller pools are put into use, will be 1,300."  That's a lot of feet to check!
