Need a summer job?

The Waynesville Recreation Center is looking for lifeguards, with a training course on tap for this month for those who do not have certification.

Lifeguards must be at least age 17.

A pre-test for the course will be held on March 9 at 6 p.m. at the Waynesville Recreation Center. This will consist of swimming 300 yards using the free style and breaststroke, retrieving a brick from the deep end of the pool and swimming back with the brick in one minute and 30 seconds. Class times for the course will be discussed at the pre-test.

Interviews for available positions will be conducted for those who successfully complete the course.
