The Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA Donates Swim Lessons to Kiwanis StoryWalk® Program to Teach Water Safety

The Kiwanis Club of Meriden is presenting StoryWalk® at Hubbard Park, featuring Stewie the Duck Learns to Swim by Kim and Stew Leonard, Jr., with De. Lawrence E. Shapiro. StoryWalk® is an innovative way for families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by featuring enlarged pages of a children’s story along an outdoor path. This year’s story is featured in partnership with the Stew Leonard III Water Safety Foundation and will be part of the Meriden Daffodil Festival this weekend. The Y is the nation’s leading teacher of water safety and swimming skills. The Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA donated gift certificates for swim lessons to the Kiwanis Club of Meriden to use in a drawing for families who participate in the StoryWalk®.
