Beach-to-Beach Power Swim Organized, Enthusiastic

Letter to the Editor,
I wanted to thank Peter Alter and the Friends of the National Park on behalf of myself and all of the participants in the recent Beach-to-Beach Power Swim for all the hard work putting the event together. The effort spent coordinating volunteers, gathering kayaks and equipment, marking the routes and making sure everyone had a safe and fun experience was greatly appreciated. With the three “warm-up” events and then the Power Swim itself, Peter and the Friends volunteers have devoted a lot of time in the past month. As a result, the Sunday swim was organized and enthusiastic. The Power Swim is becoming a well-known event here and on surrounding islands, raising funds for our park while also providing an opportunity for folks to enjoy it and each other. Thanks again, guys — we look forward to next year.
