Rep. Stephanie Cummings was joined by representatives from the YMCA, Waterbury Police PAL and Waterbury Parks and Recreation during a Saturday morning water safety event held at the Greater Waterbury YMCA.
Even though she didn’t get to swim, Rep. Cummings and her friends connected with dozens of children, parents and guardians during the event.
As part of their Water Safety Month programming, the YMCA showcased their efforts to educate and empower local youth, including demonstrating their free learn to swim program – the Safety Around Water – and other water safety programs which can be found at: https://www.waterburyymca.org/youth-development/aquatics/
The City of Waterbury Bureau of Recreation and the Department of Public Works also participated and highlighted the water safety initiatives available during the month of May. They also provided important information, including where individuals can legally go swimming in Waterbury, where swimming is prohibited, which locations have life guards, as well as the locations and the planned hours of operation at the city’s three public pools.
