Yost Pool will open this summer!
On April 21, the mayor of Edmonds declared that Yost pool would indeed open this year. The efforts of our citizens to bridge the budget shortfall that the city was experiencing has paid off, as the city will not have to put any funds into the running of the pool for summer 2009.
As part of a three part solution to save the pool, the citizens proposed a plan to increase pool fees to market rate, revise the pool schedule and staffing, and fund raise to make opening the pool a reality this summer.
About 1,000 citizens contributed donations to the save Yost pool effort, totaling over $53,000.
A big 'Thank You' to all who came together to save Yost Pool.
Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine
Little one when you play
Don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine
If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you
From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine
Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high.
There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, Away above the chimney tops.
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then - oh, why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,Why, oh, why can't I?
Bye, baby bunting
Daddy's gone a hunting
To get a rabbit skin
To wrap his baby bunting in
