Annual "Dive for Gold" Swim Party Brings Leprechaun Luck to YMCA

Just as the City of Chicago tints the Chicago River green for St. Patrick's Day, the North Suburban YMCA delivers some verdant fun of its own with the annual Dive for Gold swim party on March 17. This annual celebration invites kids to collect "leprechaun gold" tokens from the depths of the indoor pool, which will be tinted a festive green for the holiday. The tokens can then be exchanged for goody bags of prizes. "This is our eighth annual Dive for Gold party, and our families really enjoy it," notes Kathy Fielding, NSYMCA Vice President of Member Engagement. "It's a great chance for kids to meet up with friends for a special afternoon, not to mention practicing their swim skills. It reminds us that summer will be here before we know it, and we want all our kids to be safe and confident around the water."
