IsisWar Me­mo­rial Pool cel­e­brates 50 years

Isis Town and Country - - News -

AS SUM­MER comes to an end and the swim­ming pool winds down its events for an­other sea­son, the pool staff are plan­ning a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion.

This year the IsisWar Me­mo­rial Pool turns 50.

Pool man­ager Mike Roberts said they would hold two fam­ily BBQ at the Beach fun days as part of the cel­e­bra­tions.

“We are lucky enough to have our own con­crete “beach” in the middle of our main street,” Mr Roberts said.

Dates to re­mem­ber are April 10 and April 17. En­try is free on both days and many kiosk items are dis­counted.

Adding to the fun this year is a jump­ing cas­tle.

“All you have to bring is meat for the bar­be­cue, swim wear, a towel, the kids and a smile,” he said.

“On th­ese days we will also be invit­ing the youth of Childers to chal­lenge them­selves with free, one-hour, boot-camp-style ex­er­cise ses­sions,”

Th­ese ses­sions are specif­i­cally for school chil­dren and young adults from seven years to 17 years of age.

“Fit­ness ex­er­cises should be a chal­lenge but the bal­ance com­po­nents will be hi­lar­i­ous and fun,” Mr Roberts said.

Later this year, when the pool re-opens, the Isis District Swim­ming Club is plan­ning a huge lo­cal car­ni­val day, in­volv­ing swim­ming club mem­bers, swim­mers from lo­cal schools and some from our re­gion’s smaller clubs.

“This year will be a real cel­e­bra­tion of our pool and we all look for­ward to the next 50-years,” Mr Roberts said.
