I'm glad the bond passed to keep the swimming pools. Ogden's and Ben Lomond's swimming pools are really amazing. They've helped a lot of kids learn how to swim with their great swimming lessons. I took swimming lessons at Ben Lomond and I loved it.
The pools at the high schools are also used by swim teams. Weber High has won meets for two years in a row.
I think these services are really needed in our community. Scouts can even earn their swimming merit badges at these pools. I earned mine at Ben Lomond. I'm really glad we saved the pools.
