WAM has once again partnered with the Central Community Branch YMCA of Central Massachusetts (766 Main Street, Worcester) in putting on adult learn-to-swim lessons throughout the month of April.

Swim lessons are being offered free of cost to adults on Mondays and Thursdays at 7-8:30 pm. Interested persons can signup at the Central Community Branch YMCA.
