2017 school group lessons are underway at the Charlevoix Area Community Pool with over 500 kids going through the program during the months of March and April.
This year, the Chicago Club Fund supported the iSwim Safe program, covering all costs for 2nd Graders at Charlevoix Elementary, Charlevoix St. Mary and Charlevoix Montessori Academy for the Arts.
The Charlevoix County Community Foundation also awarded the Pool a grant to cover costs for 5th Graders at Charlevoix, Boyne Falls and Boyne City schools.
We have several other schools participating including Ellsworth Elementary and Petoskey’s Central, Ottawa and Lincoln schools. Each year we look at ways to seek additional funds for this program as it is part of our mission. We want all area kids to learn how to swim and be safe in the water.
