Maxwell starts summer with swimming and a movie

Mini Miss Colusa County, Hannah Azevedo caught up with Maxwell Parks and Recreations Board Member, Kyle Miller during the family movie night on Saturday.

Maxwell Parks and Recreation Kicks-off Summer with the town pool opening for the season, and the return of family movie night.

With fresh paint and newly trained lifeguards, the Maxwell town pool opened with great anticipation.

“We had a great opening day with roughly about 80 in attendance,” said Kyle Miller, President of the Maxwell Parks and Recreation District.

General swim available Tuesday through Saturday from 12 PM to 5 PM with a general admission price of $2.00. Family swim is available from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Family season passes are also available for $150.

As the sun began to set for the day, Maxwell Park and Recreation staff headed to the Little League Field to setup for Family Movie Night.

“Last year we had a great turnout for our first couple of events, said Miller. “Attendance was about 100 people.”

However, Miller added that the scorching summer heat may be a factor for attendance decline last summer.

As the screen came to life, and the concession stocked, about 60 residents attended the showing of “Secret Life of Pets”.

“I came out to support our Parks and Recreation Board,” said Hannah Azevedo, 2017 Miss Colusa County. “ Not many towns have this opportunity and it s a free event for the whole family.”

Kids of all ages settled onto their blankets, sprayed on mosquito spray and prepared to indulge in the featured film.

At 9;15pm, Miller hit the play button and thus begun the first of many “Free Family Movie Night.”

“This is a fun experience for everyone,” said 12 year old Dillon Dry.

Miller stated that the funds raised from the concession will help run the Maxwell Pool for the season.
