On October 4, Council was presented with information regarding the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative and how the City of Pella could support that initiative. The Start Somewhere walk was a success, with nearly 4,300 participants. To keep the momentum going, the Community Services department is offering free lap swim to all the week after Thanksgiving. We believe this will be a great way to draw new patrons into the facility by offering this service while giving residents a new way to exercise.
The Indoor Pool is allowing anyone entering the facility to participate in normal lap swim hours for free Monday through Saturday, November 28 through December 3. This offer applies to lap swim only and not to any classes or programs offered through the Aquatic Center.
