Have you ever wanted to help break a world record? Now is your chance...right here in Northfield!!! Northfield Community Services has entered Northfield as a host community for the World's Largest Swim Lesson. Infomatin about the WLSL and more detailed information is below.
WLSL - Take part in breaking a record in the Guinness World Record Book!

Fatal drowning remains the second leading cause of unintentional, injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14 years and is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 5. It doesn't have to be this way. Help to spread the word that learning how to swim saves lives!
