Gary Barbera and His BarberaCares Program teamed up with State Rep. Jared Solomon to give out new swimsuits to the children and families so they can beat the heat in a safe, friendly environment. Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations require that actual swimsuits be worn in the pool. Street clothing disqualifies anyone from taking a dip. There are safety reasons for the rules but it can be tough for families to buy new swimwear for their children. When the need was heard Gary Barbera and His BarberaCares Program delivered a solution… new swimwear for the kids.
The Beloved Barbera Mascot the Barbera Bear will be on-site to lend a paw giving out the new swimwear. Various sizes and colors will be available. Are the crew at Max Myers, the staff of Rep. Solomon’s office and the Gary Barbera Bear the Best? Boy I Guess!
