With school out for the summer and the weather getting warmer, summer is here and soon the summer activities in New England will begin.

Depending on the weather, the New England Swimming Pool hopes to be open ahead of schedule for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.

Gabbi Hanson will be returning for her second season as the pool manager, and will also be one of the seven lifeguards this season. Destiny Urlacher and Justin Cantwell will be returning as lifeguards along with Hallie Peterson, Kassi Lara, Adrienne Roller, and Jordan Kass will be the new lifeguards this season.

The New England Pool is open seven days a week from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and will offer two sessions of swimming lessons this year.

The first session of lessons will be from June 20-24, and the second session will begin July 11-15. If both sessions fill up a third will be added July 18-22. Lesson times will be announced at a later time.

The swim rates are as follows: family swim pass $160, single pass $95, daily pass is $5.00. Lessons with a family pass is $25 per child and without a pass is $35 per child.

For any other pool information or to schedule lessons please call the pool at 701-579-7665.

The 2016 summer baseball program will start June 6 at 8:30 a.m. at the baseball field. All interested players for T-Ball, Midgets, and Little League need to be present as the players will be meeting the new coaches along with receiving schedules and rules for the upcoming season.

Devan Koch was hired as the Summer Director and will oversee the baseball program and will also help coach.

The other baseball coaches this year are Zach Madler and Logan Wolf.

The plan is to have practices at the same time to make it easier on parents if they have more than one child playing at a different level. Little League and Midgets will practice Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and T-Ball will practice Monday and Wednesday.

The Park Bard has been working on the field and new dugouts have been built in preparation for the upcoming baseball season. Any baseball questions can be directed to Devan Koch at 605-210-2625, and children can still sign up for the summer baseball program.
