BULLHEAD CITY–Nearly 150 children, ages 6 months to thirteen years, celebrated the completion of the first session of American Red Cross Swim Lessons offered at the Bullhead City Municipal Pool sponsored by the Morning Kiwanis Club of Bullhead City. Children enrolled in lessons are taught how to float, tread, and swim both competitive and survival strokes. Certified instructors also spend time every day reviewing basic sun and aquatic environment safety rules.
