George C. Brown Community Pool lifeguards help ducks toward the finish line Sunday during the annual Duck Derby that benefits the pool. "Duckmaster" Brian Smith picks the winners from the water as they make it through the gate. SPLASH has been holding the event for over a decade, and it started out in the Mahoning Creek but has since moved to the pool. Over 750 tickets were sold this year, and all proceeds go toward the pool's maintenance and upkeep. "We're proud of our community for supporting the pool," SPLASH member Paula Quick said, adding that SPLASH also thanks all of the event sponsors. Sunday was a free swim day at the pool, where the water temperature was 78 degrees. In addition to daytime hours, the pool is also open until 8 p.m. Thursdays.
