This program funds taught forty disadvantaged youth from Harper Elementary School eight hours of swimming lessons at the YMCA as requested by the president of the Harper Parent Teacher Association. This project serves two purposes. First it validates the importance of parents participating in the Parent Teacher Organization, a long term school goal which our Club has been supporting, but second it teaches important life saving skills to youngsters who would otherwise not be able to swim. This project enhances our Club's brand as doing all we can to support the youth of our community. The President of the Thomasville YMCA is Rotarian Tom Everett.
