The 23nd annual Hobbs Pond Swim will be Sunday, July 27 at 10 a.m. on Pond Road. Registration for the event will begin at 9:15 a.m.

The swim course is about 800 yards and mostly in shallow water so swimmers are able to stand and rest if they become tired.

As usual there will be no advanced registration, no entry fee, no t-shirts and no prizes.

The post-swim potluck lunch will be at the Hope Town Library immediately following the event.

Contact Karen Furlong, the coordinator of the reception, at 542-2853 with information on your dish or special treat.
