Lifeguard On Duty


I haven’t been a lifeguard since 1992 when I was in high school and worked at a local city pool from noon to seven at night. It was the best job ever: I was at a pool and outside all day long. And, I rescued a few people from drowning too. Sometimes things come full circle in life because about two weeks ago, I took the lifeguarding class at the Y and got certified as a Red Cross Lifeguard.

So now when you see me on the pool deck, I might be sporting a red swimsuit and rescue tube. Come and swim on Thursdays at the Haverford Y from 5am-6am and 6:50pm-7:30pm and on Saturdays from 8am-9am.
