Free Swim Day at Anna City Pool

Free Swim Day at the Anna City Pool will be held on July 27th from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

The City of Anna and Anna-Jonesboro National Bank are teaming up to offer a free swim day at the Anna City Pool to all swimmers 16 and under. Plans include entertainment by Mystify Music and Whiffle Boys pizza by the slice available at the pool’s concession stand where each swimmer gets 1 free cold drink. The city’s police and fire department will have volunteers present to hand out giveaways next to the pool parking lot where there will be a police squad car and a fire truck on display. There will also be a tent with fans set up to give the overflow of the 199 max capacity allowed in the pool area at once a cool spot to relax until it’s their turn to enjoy the pool.

The initial goal was to simply provide our youth throughout Union County communities a safe and fun filled day without having to spend a dime. Please join us as summer vacation is coming to an end and we get ready to kick off another school year. With the school year in mind, lets demonstrate to our kids the importance of lending a helping hand to a neighbor in need. The flooding that has affected many students’ families, specifically in the southern part of the Shawnee School district is the perfect opportunity to do this. We are collecting school supplies to help as many of the impacted students as possible and their families have one less thing to worry about as they continue to recover. If you would like to help, please drop off school supplies at Anna City Hall or 1 of the 4 Anna-Jonesboro Bank locations anytime during business hours between now and August 7th.

New Alert System

City of Anna website alert system

Depending on when you visited our new website lately, you might’ve noticed an orange bar across the top of the pages! This orange bar is our all new community alert system. When the need arises, we’ll use this system to bring your attention to information of all kinds, such as boil water orders, road closures and other things of that nature. This message system is not intended to replace emergency alert systems such as storm sirens or 911 and you should not rely solely on this system for your emergency info! Customers can also sign up for our newsletter and receive these important messages via email.  We implemented this simply to act as another avenue through which we can make our community aware of important things going on in the area!
