Summer is a busy time of year for everyone, and that includes all of us at the Golder Ranch Fire District. With school out, many children are home for the summer and it is important to know pool safety. The firefighters of the Golder Ranch Fire District IAFF Local 3832 have teamed up with the Oro Valley Aquatic Center and the Catalina Community Center Pool to offer free swimming lessons. There are a limited number of these opportunities available.
If you are interested in learning to swim at the Oro Valley Aquatic Center, come out for the Fourth of July celebration and sign up at the pool. Swim scholarships for the Catalina Community Pool will be available at Golder Ranch Fire District Administration, 3885 E. Golder Ranch Drive, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 5 p.m. All scholarships are on a first come, first served basis.
