PAST to swim laps for money
If someone knocks on your door wearing fins and goggles, don’t panic. It’s probably not the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
It may be a member of the Port Aransas Swim Team asking for Swim-a-Thon pledges.
Swim team members will swim laps at the Swim-a-Thon to raise funds for the team.
Donors may pledge any amount per lap swum or donate a one-time set amount. Funds raised are used to offset the cost of equipment such as computers and soft ware, office supplies, trophies, swimsuits and kick boards.
Any money raised this year is earmarked for new backstroke flags and a new pace clock.
Swimmers will meet on Monday, July 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Community Park pool to earn the donations, lap by lap.
Last year younger swimmers completed an average of about 40 laps each and older swimmers about 100 each.
Checks should be made payable to Port Aransas Swim Team.
For more information or to make donations call Nana Ward at 749- 6426.
