Over the summer, my 7-year-old son took swim lessons at the Jackson Pool with Martha Quinn and the assistance of the pool lifeguards. Martha mentioned how my uncle, Dennis King, hired her to run the program many years ago. I thought it pretty neat that my late uncle picked her to run such an important community resource and now my son gets to benefit from it.

Over the course of the week, not only did we see our little swimmer progress, including swimming and diving in the deep end of the pool, he had an absolute blast doing it.

Thank you to the Jackson Pool and Martha Quinn for providing such a great resource to our community members.
