CANCELLATION NOTICE – June 1, 2020

This summer, the COVID-19 Pandemic continues to impact our lives in numerous ways. To ensure health and safety for both staff and patrons, the Aylmer Pool Program including swimming lessons and recreational swimming will not be offered by the YWCA St. Thomas-Elgin during the summer of 2020 at the Town of Aylmer Outdoor Pool.

We continue to monitor sources of information and guidelines related to aquatic program and service delivery so that we can adapt policies and processes accordingly and in line with our commitment to safely deliver swimming and water safety programs.

Again, thank you for your understanding and support of measures to protect health and well-being in our communities.

Sincerely,
Kellie Coelho
Manager of Health & Wellness
