Free Swims Offered at Sistersville Pool

There will be free swim days on June 18 (during Paws in the Park), June 27 (sponsored by Sistersville Lions), and July 30 (during the Ohio River Ferryboat Festival). Other free swim days will be posted on the Sistersville Park & Pool Facebook page as they are booked.

Courtesy of Olive Branch Animal Rescue and Refuge, free swims will also be available July 6, July 13, July 20, July 27 and Aug. 3, which also has a pet “show and tell.” Take part in games, arts and crafts and other activities. The group’s dip in the pool is part of its Pets for Prevention Pets program, which is designed to educate youth about the Olive Branch’s mission while encouraging them to set positive goals for themselves. Caring for and understanding the needs of animals can serve as a strong protective factor in preventing abuse and neglect. Having a connection with community efforts can also encourage healthy decisions. During the swim breaks, you can visit with the animals, learn to care for pets and sign up to visit or volunteer for the Olive Branch R&R located at 2499 Badger Run Road, Sistersville. There will also be a Midnight Swim from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. June 25. That event will be free to the public. Thank you all for your support of Sistersville Parks & Recreation, the Olive Branch Animal Rescue & Refuge, and so many other great community organizations!
