Free Swim Days

June 22-August 14
The Dotty Olson Swimming Pool located in Scott Valley has just announced its Super Splash Free Swim Day.   Beginning Monday, June 22, 2015 the afternoon recreational swim, held from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. each weekday, will be FREE!

In an effort to make the pool more accessible to the children in the community, the City of Etna agreed to allow businesses and members of the community to sponsor Free Swim Days for a $100 a day, which is substantially less than what it costs the City to support such a day.  “The members and businesses in the community have really stepped up to show their support of the pool,” commented City Council Member, Lori Fleck.  “We’ve been so thrilled with the support, that we’re launching the program and are optimistic that we can get enough sponsors to have the entire summer filled with free swimming for our children.”

For those interested in sponsoring a Super Splash Free Swim Day, they can contact the Etna City Clerk at 530-467-5256.  “We’re asking people to get creative,” said volunteer Marnia Brownell.  “Get together with family, friends, other business or even your book club.  If everyone chips in a little, you can sponsor a free swim day, and the kids win.”

The Dotty Olsen Pool is open for its Super Splash Free Swim Days weekdays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.  June 22 through August 14, 2015. Grab your kids and come join the fun!
