Our fine Mayor & City Council are to be commended for their splendid work in not only keeping our Mason City Swimming Pool open this summer, but for improving it dramatically! The contrast from last year's BLACK LAGOON to the sparkling jewel in the topaz crown of this Gem of the Hill Country into which it has been transformed is astounding!
A special THANK YOU to Sherry Alm, Sherri Jordan and the host of citizens who got behind the renewal of the pool is also in order. And let's not forget the great group of Mason youth who became certified as lifeguards, thus enabling us to be legally open as a public facility.
While sorely disappointed that the City was not able to keep the pool open through the Labor Day weekend, I'm hoping that some future arrangement might bring this about so that those whose lives are not primarily regulated by school schedules may continue to benefit by the many positive aspects of this public gift.
My gratitude is endless in having the privilege of being a citizen of this precious place, Mason.
