    WORKSHOP - Flyer - MS - Tupelo-page-001The National Center for the Prevention of Home Improvement Fraud will hold a free workshop “Protecting Yourself from Home Repair Contractor Fraud & Scams” from 6 – 7 p.m. Monday, June 30, 2014, at the Lee County Library, 219 N. Madison St., Tupelo.

    Topics covered in this workshop would include how to hire contractors and check them out, what should be in your contract and other issues that might arrive as people rebuild after the April 28, 2014, tornado.

    The National Center for the Prevention of Home Improvement Fraud is a nonprofit organization created to help protect consumers from becoming victims of home improvement, home repair or contractor fraud. The website is PreventContractorFraud.org.


    aquatic center logoOn Friday, June 20, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the fifth year in a row to set a new Guinness World Record™. The global record attempt for The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL), will take place at 10 am CST (11am ET, 8 am PT.)

    Team WLSL holds the current Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson, which stands at 32,450 participants representing 13 different countries across five continents. The 2013 WLSL event generated more than 50 million media impressions, spreading the event’s important message to hundreds of thousands of families.

    Tragically, drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-5, and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under 14. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children aged 1 to 4, yet many kids do not receive formal swimming or water safety training.

    Tupelo Aquatic Center will be serving as an official Host Location Facility for the WLSL 2014 event. Parents are invited to learn more about this phenomenal event by visiting WLSL.org.


    The City Council will hold an agenda review at 4 p.m., Monday, June 14 in the Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall at 71 E. Troy St.
