HOPE — The 31st Hobbs Pond Swim returns for splashy mid-morning, summertime fun on Saturday, Aug. 13.

The informal swim — and, for a handful, perhaps race — takes place in Hobbs Pond near the Hope town beach off Barnestown Road.

Swimmers should gather about 9:15 a.m. to register and socialize. The event begins at 10 a.m.

After the swim, there will be a gathering at Hope General Store.
