YMCA's "Pool School" Earns Our March '17 Donations

The Muskegon YMCA wins our donations this quarter for their Safety Around Water program. Also known as "pool school", this program teaches water safety to third-graders around the county. That's an important topic in a community like ours where our "swimming pool" is a Great Lake and where drowning is the number two cause of death among children in the county, and we're proud to support them.

Other nominees at our March meeting were Muskegon Community Radio and the Muskegon-Oceana Community Action Partnership.

We'll be very happy in our new home, the Platinum Room at the Sherman Bowling Center. The facility is terrific, the sound system perfect, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We're very grateful to General Manager Don Veltman and Event Coordinator Danielle Samuel for donating the space, without which we could not continue to do our good work. Stop in and bowl a line sometime to say thanks!
