Great Memories of the City Swimming Pool

By Lynn Earl Huddleston

Growing up in Columbia in the early sixties the city pool was a fun place to spend your summer vacation.

I have so many fond memories of the pool beginning when my mother took me there in the mornings for swimming lessons.

Every weekday afternoon we would go to the pool.

The only time we missed was the week of the fair when the pool was closed. It was so much fun to swim and jump off the high dive. Climbing up the tall ladder my heart would race with the excitement of taking the plunge into the deep water.

Warren Webb was the pool manger and always greeted everyone with a friendly smile. I will always remember the wonderful times. - Lynn Earl Huddleston
