Despite a dearth of actual swimmers, local pools had plenty of new features to show prospective members. Holmes Run Pool (3451 Gallows Road, Falls Church), for example, has new white coating and new landscaping, says board member Beth Olson. The pool is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a party June 1 that will also recognize pool members turning 60 this year.
