Eagle Butte Pool Fun!
Tiffany Haynes Reed
On most days there is a line outside the pool before it opens and the line continues throughout the day. Children and community members are more than happy to wait for their turn to splash in the cool water.
“Between the three sessions we have about 500 kids go through each day,” said Angel Lee, Swimming Pool Supervisor.
There are three sessions daily.
Session 1: 12:30 p.m.- 2:30 p.m.
Session 2: 3:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.
Adult session: 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Session 3: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The Eagle Butte Swimming pool has six lifeguards, Jimmi Lawrence, D’Aryn Lends His Horse, E’Vanna Dupris, Dysan Lends His Horse, Merrill Mitchell, and Terry Lee.
The pool is a cooperative effort between both school boards and the City of Eagle Butte.
“It’s a pretty big community effort to keep the pool going,” said Lee.
