A Real Live Mermaid!
Before the race the pool lifeguards conducted a demonstration of three different life-saving techniques they can use. The lifeguards had to do three rescues in under five minutes. Water aerobics instructor Magen Berry then demonstrated paddle board yoga in a mermaid outfit. If there is enough interest, this is a potential class that could be added to the Community pool schedule. After the race, participants and observers enjoyed a bake sale and silent auction. Proceeds from the Duck Race activities support water safety classes for children and other pool programs and materials not in the regular budget. This year's proceeds will fund the Odyssey Afterschool Swim Lessons program. The Friends of the Pool is a 501(c)3.
