Men’s and Women’s Swimming Give Back

CLARKESVILLE, Ga. - The Emmanuel College Men's and Women's swimming teams had a fun time volunteering during the grand reopening of the Ruby C. Fulbright Aquatic Center held October 15.

The Aquatics Center, located in Clarkesville GA, held a grand reopening October 15. It was a fundraiser to help fund kids to have swimming lessons who otherwise could not afford them.

"Wednesday night was a ton of fun! I loved swimming with the kids and hearing the parents and grandparents talk about how much they enjoy swimming. It's awesome to see how a simple thing such as a pool brings communities together. Happy grand reopening!" Commented EC swimmer Paisley Whitaker

Many Emmanuel College and Tallulah Falls swim team members were on hand to lead a wide variety of pool games and activities, and the evening included free hotdogs, chips and drinks for everyone.

EC swimmer Taylor Estabrooks commented "The team had an amazing time with the kids. We played many games with them like sharks and Minos, relays, and invisible bottle. The kids had an awesome time, and the staff was thankful for our participation. We are all thankful to have had this experience."
