St. Luke'sWHEN: Wednesday, November 13, 2019

WHERE: Duluth Area Family YMCA, 302 W. 1st Street, Duluth, MN

TIME: 3-4 p.m. Fun swim, 4-4:30 p.m. Demonstration and pool party

WHAT: St. Luke’s is excited to celebrate its partnership with the Duluth Area Family YMCA and Duluth Community Schools Collaborative at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School. The partnership allowed 12 kids from Myers-Wilkins to be able to take swimming lessons at the YMCA. None of them had had formal lessons, and one student had never even been to a pool.

The six-week long program allowed students to learn how to swim and provided them with skills they will be able to enjoy for the rest of their lives. Students will have a chance to show off those skills during a demonstration and pool party at the YMCA.
