Storm forces Vets Pool closure

McCLURE – Storm damage suffered late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning has forced an early end to the swimming season for the McClure Veterans Memorial Pool, board president Janet Will told The Sentinel Wednesday.

Will said the rain gauge at the pool indicated 6 inches of precipitation had fallen and described the pool as looking like, “one big mud puddle.”

Will said the pool’s originally-planned closure date was this Sunday.

Anyone who wishes to volunteer to help clean up the pool can contact Will at (570) 765-5731. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 155, McClure, PA 17841.
