The “new” city pool at Veterans Field has been the place to be this summer. Last week, Beechnut made swimming lessons available to 200 children, compared to only 60 per year in the prior two years. This is a tremendous victory for all of those children that braved the waters to learn a skill that will serve them for a lifetime, and is a wonderfully generous gesture on the part of our corporate partner. Their contribution will also fund construction of a large pavilion that will provide families shade for years to come.

As well, Dollar General Regional Manager Jim Glorioso arranged for a fantastic donation of pool toys including swimming googles, inflatable wings & vests, bouyant noodles and oodles of flip flops to fit every foot that steps into the welcoming blue water. Please spread the word that every individual that visits the pool will receive a FREE set of flip flops as long as supplies last, whether you choose to swim or not!

The following photos were taken of the swim class on July 3rd and of today’s visit by YMCA summer camp participants, just in time for the Dollar General delivery!
