The American Red Cross and The Beede Center want to ensure that every member of your family becomes "water smart." Join the Beede Center Aquatic staff Thursday May 23rd at 4pm for a FREE Water Safety Event! Get ready for the summer swim season by learning key points to be safe in, on, and around the water! Schedule includes a fun land American Red Cross presentation for the kiddos complete with stickers and tattoos, Q&A about all things water with Program Manager Amanda Smith, level testing in the water to find out your correct Red Cross Swim Level, and advanced Beede swim lesson registration onsite. Assessments and registration for White Pond lessons are also available. Being around a body of water all summer and not knowing how to swim can be scary for kids and parents. We'll give you the confidence and knowledge to become "water smart."
