We’re pleased to support Water Safety Month! Water safety is a core feature of our American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program that serves all ages.

If you know a young artist, invite them to enter our water safety coloring contest! The registration form and coloring sheet are available at PWC’s front desk. You may also download the coloring sheet (pdf; please fill out contact info on reverse side). Please return artwork to the front desk by June 1.

All drawings will be displayed in PWC and there will be prizes for participating artists!
