Free Swimming this Summer and a few More things to do

This blog is supposed to--occasionally, at least--discuss things in Hyattsville and the surrounding area, right? But, it's been awhile since I talked Hyattsville things. So, getting back to the basics, I wanted to mention that kids ages 6-17 can swim for free at several area pools on Friday & Saturday after 4 pm.

To do the free swimming, the child just needs a youth ID, which is free to all youths ages 6-17. Just stop by a community center to get one (you'll need a birth certificate if you don't already have a SmartLink account for the child). Parental supervision is required for all children under the age of 11. The pools included in the free swimming are:

Lastly, I went ahead and updated the calendar of events. It includes a tie-dye event, live animal show and free jazz concerts. There are just a few things at present, so send me anything interesting you think would be great for the calendar. That's it for today. Tomorrow is my review of Disney's Brave.
