How do you say good-bye to an old friend?
How about a day of mud and fun!
That sounds just about right to Belmont Recreation Department’s Program Supervisor June Howell. After holding a successful season-opening event – the Summer Blast Off – for the town’s Underwood Pool in June, Howell began to think about holding some sort of celebration to mark the end of the life of “the “old Underwood” (this year marks the pool’s 102nd summer) and incorporating the kids seemed to be a great idea.
“I really think it’s going to be a blast for the kids,” said Howell. “And for all of us at the department too.”
