WAM will again be sponsoring the Miles 4 Michelle open water swim. Please join us for a very worthy cause.
Once again, WAM will be partnering with the Central Community Branch YMCA (Main St, Worcester) in hosting free adult learn-to-swim classes. This is as part of a national effort to increase the number of people who know how to swim and to reduce the number of drownings, annually.
Wammies gathered at the Compass Tavern in Worcester on Dec. 10 to enjoy a meal after hosting the NE-LMSC SCM Championships Dec. 8-10. Everybody was pretty tuckered out after all the swimming, otherwise there would have been disco dancing under the black lights. Thanks to coach Alford Green for another great meet!
