You can accomplish a lot through the power of social media these days.

It was through a tweet by Louise Goldstein that the "Save the Victoria Pool Society" was formed.

They lobbied for some much-needed renovations of the historic pool at Saratoga Spa State Park and got $500,000 for that purpose in the state budget.

The pool opens for the season on Saturday. It was the first heated pool in the country when it opened in 1935.
