It needs to be noted that the pool at Hutchins Street Square is a blessing to our community.

A young lady, about 13, came to the pool. Because of an accident she was having difficulty walking. She would come with other young people about her age. They would wrestle and play roughly in the water the entire time. One day, the young lady came out of the pool area walking perfectly.

Shortly after that, an elderly woman joined one of the classes. She only had the use of one hand, so she needed the assistance of a friend who pushed her in her wheelchair. She had to be helped in every way and lowered into the pool. With the use of her one workable hand, she could hold onto the edge of the pool and walk around in the water. Now she comes by herself, without a wheelchair, smiles happily and exercises in the pool.

Praise God for all of you who support the pool at Hutchins Street Square.
