Middleboro: Beating the heat!

Can’t take the heat?

Then take a tip from Middleboro officials to head to the YMCA at 61 East Grove Street and take a free dip in air conditioned comfort until 6:00 Monday night.

Susan Okolita, executive director of the YMCA on East Grove Street, says free swimming will be offered for the duration of the heat wave.

If swimming isn’t for you, Library Director Danielle Bowker says the air conditioner is working and invites folks to grab a book and cool off in one of the many easy chairs, or bring the kids down to the Children’s Room for fun and games.

Director Andrea Priest says the Council on Aging at 558 Plymouth Street is open to all ages, even if there isn’t hot, steamy weather.

The Olympic-sized town pool on Jackson Street, will open on Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
