The temperature outside is finally warming and that means that it is time to think about summer. Swimming lessons will be happening again this summer at Bon Echo. For over 40 years youth have learned how to swim and how to be safe around water through lessons offered by MLSP.

This program would not be possible without the support of local individuals and organizations. In 2012, MLSP was in dire need of financial support. The following corporate sponsors came forward and donated at least $500 to be swim-a-thon sponsors: Land O’ Lakes Lions Club, Harlowe Community Club, Flinton Recreation Club, Township of Addington Highlands, Township of North Frontenac, Tobia Guardian Pharmacy, Hook’s Rona, Northbrook Gas and Variety Petro Canada, and Community Fiddlers. Thank you to all sponsors for supporting this program in the past. MLSP is looking for sponsors for the 2013 season. Any financial contribution is appreciated and corporate donations of $500 or more will be recognized by including their logo on the swim-a-thon shirts.

Swimming lesson registration is now available. Forms can be picked up at NAEC or at Community Services and can be dropped off at those locations as well. Swimming lessons run from July 1 - 26. Bussing is provided in the $100 cost. People who are interested in swimming lessons but who are having financial challenges can contact Community Services at 613-336-8934. If you have any questions about registration or about being a sponsor for swimming lessons, please contact Beth Hasler at 613-336-2666.
