PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE): The Pawtucket Veteran’s Memorial Pool reopened for the season on Saturday. It was supposed to open last week, but the pool was short two lifeguards. 

Enough lifeguards have been hired and the pool is operating on its normal schedule. 

When residents heard the city’s public pool may not reopen, they took action.

“I follow the Pawtucket Parks and Recreational Department and shared the post to a bunch of public pages,” Jessica Lippe, a Central Falls resident said.  “I asked all my friends to share it. Then we got the news that they finally got some lifeguards and were so excited. We were counting the days down.”

The pool is open 7 days a week until August 18th.
