Holy Cross Volunteers Offer Swimming Classes
Volunteers to Holy Cross Anglican School from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Pacific Palisades, California taught swimming classes the week of July 20 - 24. Almost 50 Island children participated in this program and learned vital water survival skills. The group stayed at the Tides and the management there graciously offered their pool and dock for swimming lessons. Classes were held each morning from 9am until 11:30 with a mid-morning snack served by the volunteers.
Saturday morning was the culmination of a week of fun and learning as the First Annual Swim Meet was held. Prizes were awarded and all participants received new bathing suits and delicious ice cream cones from Manelly’s.
In the afternoons the team came to Holy Cross and helped ready the school for reopening (August 31). Major projects included constructing a deck around the upper division classrooms, erecting a playground slide and lots of painting.
