Cool pool

Chanute youngsters were chillin’ at the pool Wednesday afternoon, although attendance is down compared to both the first week of opening and to the same time last year. Aquatics director and Interim Recreation Center Director Monica Colborn said Friday’s attendance was 123 people across two sessions, with a break for cleaning. Tuesday’s attendance was 130, but July 4 attendance was 78. Last year, the pool had 153 attendees on the Sunday before Memorial Day, and 247 on July 30 with up to 300 during July. Colborn also said rec center attendance is down, although morning walkers in the gym have come back to average 10 per morning.
