Water safety day at Livermore Falls Beach on Sat.

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Rotary Club and the "Friends of the Pemi" will host a water safety training and education day at the Livermore Falls Beach in Holderness on Saturday, June 13 beginning at 10 a.m. and running until noon. Representatives from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will collaborate with the Holderness Fire and Rescue Team to demonstrate how to navigate river water safely and then will show how they respond to a rescue situation. The goal is to explain the potential hazards of recreation on the Pemigewasset River while providing information that will lead to a safe and healthy summer of river access for families to enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, rafting and paddle boarding on the Pemi. The demonstration is open to the public and is part of the "Second Saturday Programs" offered each month by the Friends of the Pemi – Livermore Falls Chapter through September.
