By |2022-02-22T21:16:46+00:00February 22nd, 2022|Water Safety|

Most of us with fond memories of learning to swim back when we were kids only want the same thing for
our own children. The fun, laughter, and smiles remain with us for our whole lives. But, of late, concern
has been growing among ourselves and other community leaders about the unacceptable increase in
