I took this photo today with my phone:
I never lived in the dorms - why would I when my home was just as close? I do feel sort of sad simply because I'm sure the swimming pool will go too eventually. And the swimming pool was my childhood.
Seven Peaks didn't exist and the "Tube" was too far away back then. My sister Sandy worked there as a life guard and so me and Ann Dee would ride our bikes, cross 9th East very carefully and swim all day, every day. We both could swim the full length of the pool and tread water for 60 seconds so we easily earned our VIP passes. I don't remember too many details about those days but I know Kim came with us a lot and we often had ice cream after from the Dairy (now called the Creamery). Sometimes we'd walk down to Carson's Market (Kents, now another Creamery) and get a treat. That was before Minute Man (now Subway). Oh - how the falling of DT has triggered the childhood memories.
I remember Sandy telling me this story about working at the DT pool. Some of the boys that lived in the dorms would play Bart Simpson-like tricks and try to get her to say funny things over the intercom. One time they called her and asked her to page Mrs. Laye, first name Anita. So Sandy called her name over the intercom, "Anita Laye, you have a telephone call". I'm sure the good little Mormon boys, with their binoculars and open windows got a big kick out of it.
