All about what's happening at the Aquatic Center in July.

It's hard to believe July is here today! We started off with beautiful hot weather, and temperatures got a little cool, but as of June 27, we have had several large groups, lots of families, and a wealth of individuals and friend groups enjoy our facility. If you haven't had a chance to join us at SEFAC, please consider it soon. We have a lot going on with Water Games and Pool Fun, our second session of lessons starting July 10, and water aerobics, which will now be three days a week.

We currently staff 33 lifeguards and of course we are incredibly grateful for all the work that is done behind the scenes by people at the city office and the parks and recreation department. Without these people, we would not be able to put this beautiful facility to use. When you see them, please thank them for their hard work and dedication to the Sleepy Eye Family Aquatic Center.

A few reminders to parents if you are dropping your children off at SEFAC: please make sure your child knows a phone number to reach you in case of an emergency or closing, and please remind your child/children to follow the rules while at the facility. Please also remind your children to throw their garbage away and that if they are at the Aquatic Center they should be swimming rather than sitting in the bathrooms. We want to keep our facility nice for community members and visitors.

If you are still interested in signing your child up for Water Games and Pool Fun or swimming lessons, we have two sessions remaining. Please call or stop in to sign up. As always, cancellations, early closings, and events will be posted on our Facebook page. Please feel free to stop in, call the Aquatic Center at 794-9501, or check our Facebook page if you have any questions or are unsure if we are going to be open.
