In lieu of the guard meeting at the community center we will be holding a meeting at pomona before the first lifeguard cleanup day. It is my hope that I can answer everyone’s questions over email but understand that this may not be possible. I look forward to seeing you all on May 2nd.
Lifeguard Cleanup Days:
Cleanup days are a great way to show me that you are serious about working this summer and a fantastic way to meet your co-workers or get back in touch. Be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and sturdy shoes. Lastly, dress warm! It is almost always freezing on cleanup days. I look forward to seeing all the lifeguards who can make it!
Day 1: Saturday May 2nd 10am to 1pm
Day 2: Saturday May 9th 9am to 1pm
