Summer and warm temperatures have arrived!  As you may have noted the Town pond recreation area has only been open for two days in the past week.  Unfortunately we are experiencing a shortage of lifeguards.   We have advertised and we are still seeking lifeguards for the 2022 Season.  Applicants must be at least 16 years old and have lifeguard certification.  Interested individuals who are  not certified may have the opportunity to do so through the Town.  For further information please contact Karen Odell in the First Selectman’s Office @ 860 379-3359 ext. 201.

We have hired some lifeguards, unfortunately those that we have hired have limited availability.  We are trying to do the best that we can with the resources that we have.  So if you know of someone who is interested in becoming a lifeguard please send them our way for an interview.

The Town Pond will be open tomorrow, Friday July 1st from 10AM – 6:00PM.  Regrettably, that is the only day that the pond will be open for the holiday weekend.   We are in the process of trying to put together a schedule for next week and we will send out a notice  once we know what the availability of our lifeguards is.
