Family Storytime @ 11 AM
Come join us and special guests Gus & Goldie for a special storytime as we read and learn about the beach.
The City of El Paso Parks & Recreation Aquatics Division have kindly agreed to allow Gus & Goldie to visit us and help us out with this Saturday's storytime beginning at 11 AM.
Gus and Goldie were created by Bill Cowan and Gayle Vokes in 1979 as hand puppets to promote the Learn to Swim program. Since then, Gus and Goldie have grown into life-size mascots with friends including a jellyfish, dolphin, catfish, clam, and algae.
The Gus and Goldie Marketing Campaign has branched out to a franchised business available for purchase for all size swim groups ranging from swim schools to municipalities. Franchise holders have access to marketing tools to make their Learn to Swim program a great success. Promotional items available include Gus and Goldie safety videos, educational boxes used for teaching safety, puppets, activity books, t-shirts, and other merchandise. Story lines have been developed for Gus and Goldie and friends to act out a video emphasizing the 11 most important swim rules.
