David Holcolm from said, “It is so important this year as we are developing health and wellness.  We are part of the pilot “Health and Wellness Community” program.”

“The community pool offers an opportunity for people from the community to come together as a family and do swim lessons, lap swim and just have fun at the pool.”

Bryan College is providing the pool while Rhea Family YMCA is managing the facilities, providing lifeguards, and offering swim lessons.

Lamont Singleton said, “Last year we provided 20 job opportunities for people here in Dayton over the summer.  We are excited to provide lifeguards and provide a safe, fun environment for the families.”

“The swimming lessons are a good service we offer and after a slow start we had good turnout for the lessons.”
