Great Salt Pond Swim postponed
The following was submitted by Swim founder Cheryl Moore:
The 6th annual Great Salt Pond Swim originally scheduled for July 25, 2020 has been postponed until July 31, 2021. The Committee for the Great Salt Pond has made this decision for the safety of our swimmers, volunteers, and the Town of New Shoreham. We look forward to a return to normalcy next summer and a great swimmer turnout. Details of the swim can be found on our website www.CGSPBlockIsland.org.
We will still be selling our popular burgees this summer, representing a 16-year tradition. Originally, the burgee was created to raise money for the Double Ender Committee who organizes the July 4 fireworks and Parade. We normally go boat-to-boat in the Pond, selling the burgees prior to July 4, with the proceeds going to the Double Ender Committee and the Committee for the Great Salt Pond.
While the fireworks and parade are cancelled for 2020, the burgees are available for purchase. If you or anyone you know is interested in purchasing the 2020 “year that wasn’t” burgee, please send an email to Bruce Johnson at BDJohns@comcast.net.
