Slowly but surely the dome covering Decatur’s Aquadome Recreation Center pool goes into place. Working from a cage suspended in the air, workers place the framework of the dome which will measure 100 feet in diameter. The panels in the dome will be made of clear-acrylic plastic insuring sun rays for swimmers year round. The $620,000 project, which also includes a large gym, is expected to be completed late this year. (Decatur Daily Color photo by Billy Smith)

The Aquadome Park pool won’t be open for a few weeks but these two bikini-clad Athens College coeds are ready for a dip now. Gina Bugie, 18, from Lake Bluff, IL, a freshman cheerleader and Linda Mullins, 21, a sophomore from Webster Grove, MO, plan to frequent the pool this summer. They lean on the Astroturf which surrounds the pool. (Decatur Daily Color photo, November, 1969, by Billy Smith)
