IN THE MAIL: Youth can build memories at pool

GRAND FORKS -- In less than a month, Grand Forks residents will go to the polls to determine the fate of an icon of Grand Forks history, the Riverside Pool.

GRAND FORKS -- In less than a month, Grand Forks residents will go to the polls to determine the fate of an icon of Grand Forks history, the Riverside Pool.

There is a lot of conjecture as to whether there is a need for a second pool in Grand Forks. But if anyone has ever been to Elks Pool on a summer day, they wouldn't be asking the question. The pool is filled to the brim, keeping some people away due to the crowds.

Elks Pool also lacks a diving board which many young people enjoy as part of their pool experience.

When Riverside Pool is fully renovated, it will be heated (just like Elks Pool), and it will have diving boards. It will be a pool kids in Grand Forks will want to go to.

By voting yes, Grand Forks residents are voting to offer the youth of our area healthy and safe summertime alternatives. This small investment, only 12 cents a month for an average household, will yield long-lasting memories for our city's young people.

Grand Forks does much to promote healthy and safe lifestyle choices for adults. Here is our chance to do the same for kids. As a south end resident, I will be voting yes for the Riverside Pool.

Invest in your kids. On June 10, vote yes for Riverside Pool.
