Swim Like A Mermaid in Central Illinois


DECATUR - Have you ever wondered what it would be like to swim like a mermaid? Now those of us who live in Central Illinois actually have a chance.  The Mid-American Mermaid Swim School is starting a 6-week class, at the Decatur Athletic Club, on November 2nd.

Mid-American Mermaid, Chelsea Force says, “We just want to be able to share the magic in the centrally located areas, because it shouldn't be just for the ocean.”

The deadline to sign-up is October 21st.  Students will get a Fin Fun Mermaid tail and mono-fin, plus 6 weeks of mermaid instruction.  Anyone 6 years old and up can take part. You do not need to be a member of the Decatur Athletic Club to participate. For more information, call 217-423-7020.  Tamara Damante will have a special report on this story, coming up in November.
