Some signs of spring are seeing the snow melt away, hearing the first robin chirp, and, for those in Walbridge, getting the municipal pool ready for the coming season.
About 50 volunteers, including about 25 CSX employees, pitched in on this kind of spring cleaning.
Working in the deep end of the pool, above, from left, are Josh Quillen of Moline, Hunter Quillen, 11, and Henry LaPlante of Walbridge.
Nearby, Kim Kansorka of Walbridge assembles a ladder so swimmers can ease into the water.
