A Challenging Transition

I am starting a new chapter in my career. Transitioning from the public to the private sector. It's a little awkward.  You see, Oklahoma is sort of a strange place in the aquatics industry, at least to me.

I…See More

"Northshore Care Supply sells them for the lowest price I have found. If you prefer them to be individually wrapped, eLifeguard.com has them, as well as vending machines for swim diapers."
