October at Goldfish Swim School has been filled with excitement! All month long, Columbus Moms Blog and GSS have partnered up for “Socktober,” a charity drive to help collect socks for local Columbus families. Believe it or not, socks are one of the least donated items to area shelters.
There’s still time to donate socks to families in need in Columbus. Check out this link for more details.
Part of what makes Goldfish such an amazing place is its focus on swim safety. Little swimmers learn a life skill to stay safe in the water. Before the families enjoyed a swim in the heated pool, Goldfish lifeguards delivered an important safety presentation with reminders about staying safe in the pool.
We loved our time in the pool, splashing around and swimming from end to end. The friendly staff will have everyone smiling the entire time. With its heated pool, brightly-colored, beach-themed dressing rooms, and plenty of chairs to relax in and share a laugh, we all think Goldfish is a perfect place for your next party.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration at Goldfish without a visit from Bubbles, the Goldfish mascot!
Bubbles was extra excited at the event because he had just heard the last piece of amazing Goldfish news this October: Goldfish Swim School is opening a third Columbus location in Lewis Center in 2018!
In case you missed the announcement yourself, here is the info:
Members have asked Goldfish Swim School to open a location in Lewis Center since they first opened in Columbus and it’s happening in 2018! The Lewis Center location will be located near the intersection of US 23 and Orange Road (About a ½ mile east of US 23 on the south side of Orange Road just before the railroad tracks. Not too far from the Chiller North). The new location (the third in Columbus, including Dublin and Westerville) will be opening in 2018, and we will provide construction updates on the Lewis Center Facebook page, website and via our Monthly Bubble e-newsletter – so make sure to go online and pre-register.
There is no need to wait for the Lewis Center location to open, sign up today at either our Dublin or Westerville locations. When we begin registration for Lewis Center you will receive priority scheduling to be among the first to select your preferred day and time. In addition, your annual registration and makeups will transfer over seamlessly – as long as you are currently enrolled at either the Dublin or Westerville locations.
Goldfish Swim School provides swim lessons and water safety instruction to infants and children ages four months to 12 years. Classes are offered by specially trained instructors in a safe, child-friendly and fun environment. Goldfish currently teaches more than 70,000 students per week to swim and be safer in and around the water. Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, Goldfish Swim School was established in Birmingham, Michigan, in 2006 and opened its first franchise location in 2009. They are currently in the process of expanding franchise opportunities throughout North America, with over 80 schools open or in development in more than 23 states and Canada.
October was a pretty great month for Goldfish Swim Schools in Columbus!
