Annual Newsletter

20170517 02The Children’s Water Festival was a success again this year.  We are always honored to attend and share our Reach, DSC00023Throw, Don’t Go educational session with local third grade students.  It is always fun to watch the children perform the water safety relay.

We want to send a special thank you to the 4th grade teachers of Bauder Elementary for DSC00008once again inviting us into their classrooms to educate their children on water safety and life jackets.



20170507_084902This year we participated in the Colorado Marathon.  By hosting a refreshment station our organization earned a considerable donation from the marathon foundation.  We were fortunate to find 12 or 13 willing volunteers to help us hand out energy snacks and drinks.  It was a fun time.  Thank you to all the volunteers!


Thank you Splash Pool Services for inviting Mackenzie to your annual preseason staff meeting.  We feel it is important for lifeguards to understand the full depth of their responsibilities and sharing Mackenzie’s story  and Mackenzie’s life following her drowning can help to do just that!

We also want congratulate our partners at Splash Pool Services for opening their first Splash Swim School location in Fort Collins!
