Blissfield villagers offered swimming option in wake of closed pool

With the village’s decision to close the Gail Giles Memorial Pool this summer, an agreement with The Centre on the campus of Lenawee Christian Schools in Adrian has been reached to give Blissfield village residents an alternative for swimming this season.

Blissfield village president A. Ray Jones said The Centre will offer a discounted daily rate for village residents at $4 a day. The normal rate is $6 a day.

“This agreement has been reached due to the village pool being out of commission for the coming summer session,” Jones said. The special Blissfield program went into effect May 6 and will run through Sept. 30. The daily fee includes access to the swimming and other facilities.
