Letter to the Editor: Yes to summer fun

— To the editor:

I’m Jenna Miller, I am 12 years old, and I have been swimming on The Dalles Swim Team for 6 years. We practice in the mornings all summer in our big outdoor pool!

Swimming is a great way to get exercise and I enjoy being with my friends. I like swimming because it is fun to try and beat your swim times from previous meets, you get in shape, and you can be with your friends.

I also like to fun swim during the summer. It gives us something to do on really hot summer days. Without the pool, summers would be really boring because there would be no swim team and there would be a lot of kids in town wondering what to do.

Please vote yes on the pool bond so that we can have a new pool!
