A grant from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley provided life jackets and flutter boards to help first-time swimmers be introduced to water safety and swimming skills during the Valley Mountain Recreation sponsored Red Cross Swimming Lessons at Wellman Lake last July.

The new equipment opened classes to three-year-old enthusiasts (The Sea Otters) and four-year-old youngsters (The Salamanders) all of whom had a “whale of a time.”
