NORWICH – Despite Kurt Beyer pool being closed due to recent flood damage, citizens of Norwich will not go without public swimming facilities this summer.
City Youth Bureau Director Bob Mason said a generous gift from the Norwich City School District has enabled the normal pool operation to be moved to the Echentile pool, located at the high school on Midland Drive.
“The school administration’s can-do attitude has been more than good,” Mason said. “They’ve really helped out in a team effort to provide this service to the community and the surrounding area.”
Norwich City Schools Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan said the district is simply glad they could be of service.
“They’re good to go,” O’Sullivan said. “We’re just happy to help out and make sure kids have a place to swim this summer.”
