fun things to do right here

Park District of HP shares water safety tips

When the weather gets

hot, nothing beats a cool

dip in the water.

While pools, lakes and

the ocean are great summertime

destinations for

family fun and relaxation,

it is important to keep

family safe in and around

water. This summer,

whether at Hidden Creek

AquaPark, Rosewood

Beach or on vacation at a

favorite lake, have a plan

and educate the group on

water safety by following

these important tips.

For parents:

1. Discuss water safety

Kids enjoy treats at the Lake Bluff Farmers Market last year. The farmers market begins in June. 22ND CENTURY

MEDIA FILE PHOTO

and rules with children before

every visit to the pool

or beach

2. Ensure children have

strong swimming skills by

enrolling them in swimming

classes

3. If bringing a child’s

friend to the pool, immediately

assess their swimming

ability

4. Don’t give shoulder

rides, as it can be difficult

to tell if the child’s head is

above the water

5. Don’t let children

play breath-holding games

6. Keep toys that sink to

the bottom of the pool at

home

7. Watch children at all

times around any body of

water

8. Don’t get distracted

by books or electronics

9. Remember to stay

within an arm’s reach of

children at all times, even

if they’re wearing a life

jacket

10. Only use Coast

Guard approved life jackets

that are properly fitted

– Hidden Creek Pool has

Coast Guard approved life

jackets for children that

are free to use while at the

pool

For kids:

1. Never swim without

an adult present

2. Make sure a lifeguard

is watching the pool and a

caregiver gives permission

before entering the water

3. Don’t rough house

or play breath-holding

games; it’s dangerous

4. Yell “help” over and

over again if someone is

in trouble; don’t try to help

someone alone, or risk being

pulled under

Please see CALENDAR, 4

5. Remember to take

breaks when tired

Remember, lifeguards

are there to enforce rules

and regulations and respond

to aquatic emergencies.

Parents and guardians

are responsible for supervising

children in their

care.

Have a fun and safe

summer from the Park

District of Highland Park.

Light Opera Works summer workshops focus on building confidence on the stage

For the past 15 summers,

children ages 8-13

have learned about musical

theater firsthand at

Light Opera Works in Wilmette.

“I think it was Lucy who

convinced me we really

had a good thing going,”

recalled Light Opera Works

general manager Bridget

McDonough when asked

about her favorite memories

of the company’s summer

workshop programs.

“Lucy was a sassier, more

self-assured Nathan Detroit

in ‘Guys and Dolls’ than

any 10-year-old little redhaired

girl had a right to be.

“I was flabbergasted

when I found out later

that on the first day of the

workshop Lucy’s mom approached

our director to

say her daughter had never

been on stage before and

might need a little extra

coaching and coaxing to

get over her shyness. Believe

me, on stage that girl

was not shy.”

Performing offers so

many benefits to young

people: it builds confidence,

enhances observational

and analytical skills,

fosters teamwork and,

above all, is a lot of fun.

Donough said.

actors and counselors to

Lucy’s parents were.”
