Lifeguards, pool managers sought

March 08, 2012|Anne Weatherholt | Around Hancock

Summer is just around the corner, and the town of Hancock is looking for qualified people to serve as lifeguards and pool managers for the municipal pool. Hancock is  blessed to have a nice pool facility that serves the community well.

This is a great summer job. The town also needs someone to teach swimming lessons. My own boys learned how to swim in the town pool.
