The 2018 Summer Swim Program closes out Thursday, June 29 with the annual Perry Hoffman Memorial Water Show at the Kofa Inn. There will be two shows, one at 6 p.m. for the younger children and the second at 7:15 p.m. for the older participants. Participants in the shows will be demonstrating the skills they learned during the program. The show will feature a performance of the Zipper, which was created by the late Pop Harvey.
The Summer Swim Program follows the American Red Cross Learn to Swim and Learn to Swim Better curriculum. The program is conducted by the Pop Harvey Aquatic Association with funding from donors, the Town of Parker and the Colorado River Indian Tribes.
The swim program has used the pool at the Kofa Inn since 2004 as the Town of Parker no longer has a public pool. During the time it was in operation from 1979 to 2003, it’s estimated more than 10,000 local children learned to swim there.
The Kofa Inn is an enterprise of the Colorado River Indian Tribes.
Admission is free and the public is invited.
