TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — After months of anticipation, the Vigo County YMCA pool has finally opened.
A grand reopening celebration was held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31.
The pool closed around Labor Day of 2018. After a community effort pushed to have the pool reopened, the City of Terre Haute stepped in to help with funding.
The YMCA posted to their website encouraging the community to “Come in your hula skirt and swim suit for an afternoon of snacking, dancing, swimming and long anticipated celebration!”
They said there will even be a “special splash appearance” by Mayor Duke Bennett who is said to do a cannonball into the pool.
