A Final Plunge


Former Yankton City Commissioner Bill “Duke” Ellingson completes the final lap at the Fantle Memorial Park Pool Friday at 5 p.m. Ellingson was cheered on by friends, family and city officials. Though the last official event at the pool is next week’s annual pooch plunge, Friday marked the final day the pool was open to the general public. Construction on its replacement — the Huether Family Aquatics Center — will begin next year with the new facility opening in 2021.
