Drowning Prevention Strategic Planning Meeting

We had a great turnout during the FIRST Drowning Prevention Strategic Planning Meeting held in Collier County, as you can see on the picture we had great representation. The individuals, who attended the meeting yesterday, were committed, attentive, excited, passionate, and dedicated to saving lives from drowning. These individuals although from very diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, all showed such cohesiveness and collaboration to work together to ensure the success of the programs/initiatives/goals/strategies discussed during the 4hour meeting.  I would not doubt for a minute that this group of people could accomplish anything they set as a goal. I am so glad to be part of this wonderful group of people. THANK YOU! We wouldn’t doubt for a minute, that our coalition members could accomplish anything they set as a goal. We look forward to continue working together making a difference in the lives of Collier County Children!
