Rain impacts swim season

Another year is in the books for the Aurora Aquatic Facility, with attendance impacted this year by heavy rains.
“This season was super great, though the weather was kind of funky,” said co-manager Eleanor Cerveny. “It’s hard not having a definitive rule temperature-wise because 70 degrees can feel very hot or very cold, depending on a lot of factors.
