Shrewsbury to participate in world's largest swim lesson

Shrewsbury- The Shrewsbury Parks and Recreation Department and the Shrewsbury Health and Racquet Club (SHARC) are teaming up to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim and to prevent drowning. A free lesson will be held June 18 at 11 a.m. at SHARC, 3 Tennis Drive. Pre-registration is required at the Parks and Recreation Department office, 100 Maple Ave., by June 11.

Swim professionals across the nation will participate in the event in pools and lakes across the U.S., hoping to create the world's largest swim lesson. If 25 or more people participate, Shrewsbury will be entered into the official count for the world's largest lesson.

The event is open to all ages. Children under 5 must have an adult participate with them in the pool. For more information about this lesson or other swim programs offered in the summer, contact parkrec@th.ci.shrewsbury.ma.us.
