Russell Pool Closing Aug. 13

Russell PoolThe final day the Russell Municipal Swimming Pool will be open for the 2017 season will be Sunday, Aug. 13.

Russell City Administrator Jon Quinday says that date was chosen because all of the pool's lifeguards are in high school or college. Many will be going back to college the following week and many others will begin high school fall sports practices on Monday, Aug. 14.

Quinday thanks all staff and patrons for their support of the pool through the summer.
