They were twisting by the pool yesterday as Maplewood celebrated the 50th anniversary of its community pool with a ribbon cutting, games, fun and, yes, music.
Mayor Vic DeLuca, accompanied by Committeewoman India Larrier and Committeeman Greg Lembrich, recognized the original founding members of the pool, and introduced an exposition by collegiate divers from Seton Hall University, William Patterson University and the Maplewood Manta Rays.
Games included a hotly contested water balloon toss, tug-of-war and an inflatable obstacle course in the deep end of the pool.
