Splash into Summer Safely at HMC

            Swimming lessons promote water safety, increase confidence for young swimmers, and teach elementary strokes in a non-competitive environment. In June, Hopedale Medical Complex is offering swim lessons at the Hopedale Wellness Center and the Atlanta Public Pool. All lessons are taught by certified instructors. Cost is $35 for HWC members and $45 for non-members. Register online at or by calling (309) 449-4500.  If these times do not work for your busy schedule, private lessons can be set up by contacting the Wellness Center.
