Kingston Swim Club staffers recognized for aiding swimmer in distressKingston Proc 11.1.13.jpg
On Monday night, Council and I honored the staff members and executive board from the Kingston Estates Swim Club for their dedication to maintaining a place that is safe and healthy for all its patrons. Roughly two dozen club staff members, including several young lifeguards and their families, came out to Monday's Township Council meeting to accept a special proclamation recognizing their efforts. The award stemmed from an instance this summer that required four of the club's teenage lifeguards to put their training to use to rescue a swimmer who had become distressed. It was our honor to recognize the lifeguards -- Alex King, Daniel Walsh, Kevin Quinn and Jeffrey Nixon -- for their quick thinking and life-saving actions, and to thank the entire swim club organization for promoting a culture of safety among its members and staff.
