What is often called the greatest summer job ever is waiting for 25 excellent swimmers.in Temple. Temple Parks and Recreation needs 25 lifeguards to work at local swimming facilities this summer.

Just imagine starring in our own local "Baywatch". But there is no sand, just cement, and the cameras will all be in your head.  But the swimmers will be there in the flesh and they need someone to watch over them.
