The southern Alberta community of Vauxhall, is a small farming town that is missing one thing most municipalities boast as a great way to encourage affordable and fun physical activity. Itâ€™s known as the â€˜Potato Capital of the Westâ€ and is located 90 km northeast of Lethbridge and is home to 1200 residents. Some could argue thereâ€™s not much in the way of things to do in the area and the lack of a swimming pool hasnâ€™t helped. The town lost its only pool two years ago.
â€œIt needs to be redone. Itâ€™s leaking so bad that it does not hold enough water,â€ said local resident Dorthea Mills.
