Getting ready for pool season

Hilda Garrett, who’s a member of Kerr Lake Country Club and the club’s pool chairwoman, spent her day Monday laying down the beginnings of a new coat of paint for the pool’s bottom. She said the club intends to open the pool this year on May 29 and close it for the season on Sept. 6. Once the new paint’s down it’ll take about seven hours to fill the pool with water and a week to treat the water so it’s swimmable.
