Back in the 80s, maybe, but there's not a lot that a quarter can buy you these days, let alone a buck. But folks at the Old Town Orono YMCA are hoping folks can cool off and make some fun summer memories for just 2 dimes and a nickel!


The Old Town Community Pool is located at the Old Town High School at 203 Stillwater Avenue in Old Town. According to the Old Town Y's Facebook Page, the price to swim at the Community Pool this summer, from the hours of 9 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon, is just 25 cents!
