As of 1/7/2015, I have contacted all of the pools and confirmed they will open and swim classes begin February 9th, with registration beginning after January 12, 2015. Olive-Harvey's pool is added to the list, opening February 14th, enrollment at any time.
A special thanks to all of the swim clubs and their directors, and to Chicagoans whose heartfelt comments so moved this petition into a count of over 1,700 signatures -- unheard of!
Now I ask that you get back into your swim gear or keep that New Year's promise to learn to swim this year. You will learn lifelong skills, meet great pals, have fun.
Best wishes, happy new year! -- Phyllis C
