A great opening!

Opening Day at the new Exeter Aquatic Center!

Village Chairman Alan Michl supervises sign in at the pool.

The Exeter Aquatic Center opened with a free swim day for everyone on Sunday afternoon. Lots of comments were made about the new pool looking smaller until the kids got in it. With three separate sections for swimming the pool seemed a lot larger. Lots of kids and parents came to watch with over one hundred signed in for the day. A number of community members visited during the afternoon, some enjoying tours of the new facitility and some just watching the kids. The new zero entry area was a kit with kids and parents alike. Pool single and family passes are available for sale at the pool and at the village office.
