LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — YWCA Greater Lafayette will celebrate a grand reopening of its pool with special guest Olympic Gold Medalist David Boudia.

The reopening, which will also be a ribbon cutting ceremony, will be held on Thursday, Aug. 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Officials said Boudia will be available to sign autographs. The community event includes free swimming, refreshments and door prizes.

“The community has waited patiently for us to reopen the pool,” YWCA executive director Debi DeBruyn told News 18 in a release. “With both grant dollars and donor support, it became a reality on July 1, 2014. It’s just a fantastic time for the YWCA and the Greater Lafayette area!”

DeBruyn said the YWCA offers many pool programs. For more information on pool memberships or swim programs, please call 765-742-0075 or click here.

The YWCA is located at 605 N. Sixth St. in Lafayette.
