The St. Marys Community Pool closed for the year at the end of the day on Sunday, ending a summer filled with fun times and relaxing afternoons spent at the facility by area residents.
Sarah Sweeney, who wrapped up her first year as pool manager, remarked that she thought the summer went really well.
"Despite the weather in June, I really do think (attendance) picked up in July," Sweeney said. "I think we started some new things that we're looking forward to for next year, such as the water volleyball league."
Pool staff built their own water volleyball net earlier this summer and are in the process of raising the funds necessary to purchase a real one.
