  • He got us googles and watched that we were safe.

We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 3rd Quarter “Above and Beyond” Award is . . . Diane Flynn!

Diane is a Lifeguard at the Geneseo Community Center. Diane was nominated by Teri Lynch. Here is what Teri had to say . . .

“On September 18th, a woman from the swim class come out to report that there were two areas where someone had sat down with a dirty bottom leaving feces on the bench. Diane did not hesitate and went straight to get gloves and Clorox wipes. She went into the women’s locker room and cleaned the areas. This was not her job, but she didn’t think about that. She did something most would not do. Kudo’s to Diane!”.
