Kids in Stratford are encouraged to come out to Lions Pool on Friday, Aug. 16 for a free swim and pizza party, courtesy of Simple Dreams Stratford.

The party, organized by Richard and Ruth Kneider in partnership with the City of Stratford, will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

“We want to get as many families out as we can and let them enjoy the summer,” says Richard.

Started in 2011, the free swims have become a popular activity for local families, last year attracting close to 250 kids.

Knieder says he hopes to attract close to 300 this year.

“We want as many people to take advantage of it as possible,” he adds.

The pool party is one of several local initiatives organized by the Kneiders through their charity. The last two years they’ve ran a turkey giveaway at Thanksgiving and last December held their 24th annual To Stratford with Love banquet.
