Marisa Gerard, 41, is asking South Miami commissioners to build a pool so that her six-year-old Aaron Gerard, who has never been to a pool, can learn how to swim. The family can't afford swimming lessons so they better build it fast.
"It doesn't have to be a massive pool.....the money is there and we need to use it....it's not about the adults, it's about the children....it's diabolical not to use (our Government's) money to teach our children to swim."
Ms. Gerard, there are three YMCA facilities in South Miami. They are at: 2370 NW 17th Ave #100. Miami, 730 NW 107 Avenue, Suite 200, Miami, and at 2000 Northwest 62nd Street
Miami. You now have access to a pool and can teach your child to swim!
