Freestyle generosity

Dear Editor:The Aspen Swim Club would like to express its gratitude to the Aspen Elks for its generous donation. Its donation makes it possible for children of the Roaring Fork Valley to participate on the swim team for a very reasonable cost.Swimming is an important skill to learn for numerous reasons. Certainly, topping the list is drowning. Drowning is amongst the leading causes of death in children. Later in life, swimming is an important skill to have as it represents an orthopedically friendly form of aerobic exercise. Mastery at a young age makes it that much easier to continue in adulthood.The Aspen Swim Club is a year-round not-for-profit organization. Our summer season begins May 1. We look forward to a successful session. This is greatly facilitated by the generosity of the Aspen Elks and others.Gordon GersonAspen Swim Club
