Mary Lou Duplain Church wrote: I used to meet up with Sally Spencer around 7am to “doggie paddle” across that pool for exercise. Then one day the lifeguard took pity on me and asked me if I wanted to really learn to swim. I was in my 30’s! I jumped at the chance and he showed me how then and there. Thanks to that guy I can hold my own now doing many different strokes.
