I didn’t want the end of summer to pass by without expressing thanks and appreciation to Parks and Rec’s Carol Stapleton and her crew of lifeguards and other student staff members at Crystal Lake. As a regular user of the lake, I’ve seen those kids handle a variety of situations with aplomb, maturity, and thoughtfulness. They are consistently polite and friendly to all. In addition, they take their life-guarding very seriously. This is a direct result of Carol’s training and supervision. Well done!
