Pool promotes water safety

April is water safety awareness month and John Vanderzicht Pool is offering April Pools Day from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, April 20.

Admission is free, and the event will feature raffles, hot dogs, water scavenger hunt (so bring a swim suit), swim lesson demonstrations, aerobic demonstrations, kayaks, paddle boards and much more.

New North Whidbey Aquatic Club coach Bill Patterson said at his introductory meeting, noting we live on an island, that the goal of the community should be to teach all local children 5 to 9 how to swim. He added that April Pools Day is a good way to get all the youngsters involved in swimming.
