End-of-summer means "Dive-in Movie" at Sellwood Pool

by: DAVID F. ASHTON - It's all in the pool for this movie party at Sellwood Pool. A welcome cool evening breeze didn’t chill the fun about 220 kids were having at the Sellwood Pool on August 24 as the annual “Dive-in Movies” presentation, “Puss in Boots”, started playing on a big screen at the water’s edge.

Most parents opted to watch the film, as well as watch their kids at play, from the comfort of poolside chairs.

But, ringed around the pool and in the water, numerous Portland Parks & Recreation lifeguards were hard at work. “We even have scuba divers in the water, for extra safety,” pointed out Manager Kim Cunningham.

As the scent of freshly popped corn and caramel corn filled the evening air – it seemed to perfect way to say goodbye to the summer.
