World's Largest Swimming Lesson

The Arne Hanna Aquatic Center is hosting a free event on June 20 from 8-8:30AM to help raise awareness about the importance of swimming lessons and water safety.  The Aquatic Center will be joining pools from around the world in an attempt to break the 2013 World Record for the largest simultaneous swim lesson.  Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning; the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14.  Join us on Friday, June 20!  Call 360-778-7665 to register.  The registration deadline is June 19, 2014.
