June 13, 2007 Parents, caregivers, now's your chance to give a gift that lasts a lifetime, especially in the Great Lakes state.
The YMCA's Backyard Swim program offers certified swimming lessons right here in our area where toddlers through adolescents can learn the joys of swimming, water sports and safety.
Just a short ride north of Capac, the Backyard Swim program is offered at the historic farm of Doris and Alfred Stuever. They've graciously opened their professional grade in-ground swimming pool to the program for more than 15 years, and there's nothing they'd like better than to see it full of kids learning how to swim, lessons that will stay with them forever.
In the Great Lakes state, water safety shouldn't be taken for granted—and knowing how to swim and be safe opens doors to a lifetime of summer fun.
Take advantage of the Backyard Swim program at the Stuever's Turner Road farm, lessons are affordable and are suited to a variety of skill levels. Call the Port Huron YMCA at 810-987-6400.
