Water safety recognition

The Josh Project, a nonprofit organization that works to teach children basic pool safety skills and swimming lessons in a bid to lessen accidental drownings, has received a commendation from State Representative Mike Ashford (R–Toledo). Presented at St. Francis de Sales High School’s Natatorium on August 8, the commendation recognizes 10 years of service to the community. “For the past 10 years, the Josh Project has helped hundreds of men and women – young and old – learn to swim and understand the importance of safe water practices. I have no doubt that their dedicated efforts have succeeded in saving lives,” said Ashford. The program was started by Toledo native Wanda Jean Butts in 2007.
