Due to decreasing population and
number of children in each community,
the present programs would not be able
to be offered by any one community and
succeeds because of the tri-town effort.
Additional Information
 We have 3 people on staff that are certified pool
operators, due to federal laws that require us to have a
C.P.O. on staff anytime the pool is open.
 In addition, Jody Nelson and I are certified in confined
space training.
