WOOD RIVER — The seventh annual Wood River Calendar is now available.
The calendars are published annually by the Wood River Heritage Council. Each year has a different historic theme. This year’s theme is “Memories of the Wood River Pool.” The original pool was donated to the city of Wood River by Standard Oil and at one time was the largest pool in the nation. It opened on July 4, 1926. The calendar contains numerous pictures and facts about the old pool and the current pool.
Calendars can be purchased for $5 at the following Wood River locations: the museum, City Hall, library, Camp Drug Store, Cleary Shoes, Illinois Cleaners, 1st Cloverleaf Bank, Bank of Edwardsville, Shell Credit Union, Farm Fresh, Marci’s, Medicine Shoppe and Jeffrey’s Flowers by Design.
This is the museum’s only fund-raiser and the nostalgic pictures make it a keepsake.
