Legion backed swimmers
Dear Editor,

On behalf of Kachemak Swim Club I would like to thank the American Legion of Homer Post 16 Ladies Auxiliary for their generous contribution to help send six swimmers to Northwest Region meets in California and Washington this past March. These large meets provide an opportunity for our swimmers to improve their swimming skills and to expand their vistas. Sponsorship such as the American Legion's sends a strong message to children that their efforts to achieve excellence are important.

As a volunteer with young people in my community I personally appreciate the local contributions that our club receives. Our town is a wonderful place to live because of the kindness and support of our neighbors.

Cheryl Rykaczewski, vice-president, Board of Directors, Kachemak Swim Club
