Our video from Monday night’s rally to save Evergreen Pool
Young swimmers like those two were among the Evergreen Pool supporters who spoke eloquently and energetically Monday night at the rally on the eve of the pool’s closure, aimed at gaining attention and momentum to make sure the closure — which starts today — is not permanent.

Awesome video, I hope they save the pool. So many people use the pool, it would be such a loss to them and our community.
