Shrewsbury – On June 18, the Shrewsbury Health and Racquet Club (SHARC) hosted a local portion of the world's largest swim lesson to promote the importance of children learning to swim to prevent drowning. Lessons were simultaneously conducted worldwide at 11 a.m. (ET) in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record. The local lesson was organized in conjunction with Shrewsbury Parks and Recreation.
