Swimming safely

Arroyo GrandeMay 5, 2014 

A huge thank you goes to our community, the Arroyo Grande Fire and Police Department and the great staff of the 5 Cities Swim School for putting on a tremendous Safety Day. We raised money for local children who cannot afford swimming lessons.

Drowning is the leading cause of death in the United States for children ages 5 and under. It’s the second leading cause of death for ages 15 and under. The 5 Cities Swim School’s mission is to do away with that stat.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
