Youth News It’s almost swimmin’ time! The Watkins Area Pool is scheduled to open Sunday, June 2. There is lifeguard training both June 1 and 2, but open swimming will start Sunday. The giant, horizontal crack has been repaired, and the pool soon will be filled. It’s not too late to buy a season pass, for the whole family or singles. It’s also not too late to sign up for swimming lessons, although some classes may already be full. Call the Watkins city office at (320) 764-6400 to inquire about either. (And remember, your class reservation is not final until the class is paid for.) Have a great, wet summer! Staff photo taken Sunday, May 26, by Jean Doran Matua.
