Read For the Record

This is a day that promotes the love of reading for young children.  Reading aloud to young children before they start school is the single most important thing you can do to help them get ready to learn to read.

Come join us at the Y on Thursday, October 25 at 10 am and 2 pm in Child Watch Room A to hear a story from a special guest reader with corresponding craft. 

Read More to find out why reading is so important at an early age. 

Become a Lifeguard

Prepare yourself to help others while giving you a rewarding job opportunity. Learn the duties and responsibilities of lifeguarding, including surveillance, how to use rescue equipment, and how to care for someone who has sustained an injury.

We offer 2 learning formats: Blended learning which includes online study plus onsite skill practice and testing. Our traditional format is all onsite learning. There is a pre-course session in which you are required to pass a swimming skills test.

Upon successful course completion, participants receive an American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification with CPR/AED and First Aid for lifeguards (valid for 2 years). All classes offered will certify you for any depth of water, unless they indicate otherwise.

Prerequisite: 15 years or older, swim 300 yd continuously with breath control, swim 25 yds, retrieve a 10lb diving brick and swim back to wall, and tread water without use of hands for 2 minutes.
