On this day in our history back in 1966, it was opening of Amsterdam's 2nd pool.
Members of the neighborhood youth corps between the ages of 16 and 21 built the pool
The late congressman Sam Stratton was there for the ceremony along with Mayor Marcus Breyer and Amy Terry from the labor department.
There were all sorts of swimming and diving exhibitions for the opening of the pool, which could accommodate 500 swimmers at any one time.
