NORTH FORK – The much-anticipated opening of the swimming hole at the North Fork Rec Center is set for Monday, June 22.
Made possible by money and man power from the North Fork Boosters, the Rec Center is the perfect spot for kids of all ages to spend the hot summer afternoons.
There is no charge to swim at Willow Creek, which is dammed up to create the old fashioned swimming hole every summer.
Also, the Boosters serve up free lunches to local kids, provided through a grant obtained by the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians in conjunction with the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program.
Lunch will be served Monday through Friday, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Rec Center, 33507 Road 230, from June 22 through Aug. 7.
There is no cost for the lunch and no registration necessary; kids just need to check in, and all meals must be eaten on site by the children.
Lifeguards are on duty and kids can swim from noon to 5 p.m. Children must be 8 years of age or older to be dropped off and left unattended by an adult. The Rec Center closes at 5 p.m. so children must be picked up by that time.
