It seems like not long ago that summer started in the southwest, but the season is starting to wind down, and thoughts will turn to fall.
The City of Swift Current Community Services Department says that Fairview Pool will close for the season on August 31st, with the Aquatic Centre opening up for the fall and winter on September 2nd. Crescent Point Pool in Gull Lake will close for the season on August 29th, and they'll have a big Slip 'n' Slide set up that day to mark the end of the season.
Also, hockey season will be starting up again soon. The Swift Current Broncos, who made a big trade yesterday, will be starting training camp on August 26th and their first pre-season game will be on September 1st. If you're already looking to lace up the skates, you can book ice times at the Credit Union iplex at discounted rates until Friday by calling City Hall at 306-778-2787.
And, of course, classes will start up again on September 1st at schools all over the southwest. As families are getting ready for the new school year, the Chinook School Division is advising parents of students who take the bus to school in Swift Current that they should receive a letter this week outlining their child's pick-up location and times for the upcoming season. If you don't receive this letter by Friday, you're asked to call Jenn at 306-773-2735 or Fay at 306-778-9236.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
