The pool will open this summer on Memorial Day weekend. Recreational swim will be offered seven days a week.

“Thursday evenings will be our Dive-in Movies,” said Wolfe who added the movies will be held at the Seventh Street Pool at 12385 Seventh St. in Yucaipa. The movie will be a rerun from the prior night’s Movies in the Park.

Swimming lessons will be offered by Yucaipa Swim Team, Monday through Thursday and by the city of Yucaipa on Saturdays, said Wolfe.

In addition, the city is offering its summer camp for youth. Call the community center at 790-7460 for more information on how to register.

“Yucaipa Calimesa Joint Unified School District is once again offering its free lunch program,” said Wolfe. “This lunch is free to anyone who comes to the park, as long as they are 18 years or younger.”

Following the end of the report, Councilman Bobby Duncan said, “Looks like a great line up.”

Mayor Pro Tem Greg Bogh concurred.

“I’m excited to see The Answer,” said Bogh.

Wolfe said most bands she contacted all had one thing in common.

“Everyone says they love little Yucaipa,” she said with a smile.
