Local Foundation Teaches Kids to Swim, Not Sink by Dick Cooper Finley Carter loved to splash and play with his parents in the shallow end of the Bay Hundred Community Pool in St. Michaels, but until last summer those were the outer limits of the six-year-old’s aquatic adventures. Now, thanks to a new program, Finley and 274 other area children can swim the length of the pool on their own, a skill that gives

their parents some peace of mind and could save lives. The program called “SOS: Sink or Swim” is sponsored by the Miles River Yacht Club Foundation and has the goal of teaching every child in Talbot County how to swim. It was so successful in its first year t hat t he Fou nd at ion i s r a i si ng money now to repeat it this summer
