The West Cook YMCA keeps doing interesting and positive things in Forest Park, River Forest and neighboring villages. Again this summer it will operate the Power Scholars Academy in conjunction with the public schools in Forest Park and River Forest. 

New this summer will be free swimming lessons at the Y for youngsters from Forest Park, Maywood and River Forest. If you have a second or third grade child enrolled in a public school, you are eligible.

Long seen as an Oak Park-centric institution, in recent years our Y has been living up to its wider West Cook promise. And for that we are thankful.

I am so glad Oak Park children are exempted from this program. Oak Park children need to be taught how to swim in an Olympic sized pool with stadium seating. Nothing less. After all, it is for the children.
