New equipment installed at pool

After several weeks of anticipation, two new slides were installed and ready for pool-goers at the West Carver Community Pool last weekend, June 29-July 1. All pool visitors enjoyed free admission during the weekend as part of a promotion to celebrate the new equipment. With temperatures soaring into the 90s on a daily basis over the past week and a half, pool manager Jennie Aune said the facility has been very busy.
