Does everyone know the Patton pool BARELY passed inspection this year?!!??! The good news is there is money out there to get the pool redone...there is a meeting Thursday night to request money from the CPA to do it. I AM TOTALLY FOR THIS!!!!! The pool is a huge asset to our community and the park program and caters to those of all ages. Please help!!! PLEASE send a letter of support to this committee through the coordinator, Christine Berry at cberry@hamiltonma.gov. even a quick email right now would be great THANKS
