Dog Swim Scheduled This Sunday, September 25, 2016

A dog swim in Governors Village has been suggested for a few years. Today Recreation Committee Chair Trent Leonard confirmed this year it will happen.

The event takes place Sunday, September 25, 2016, 3:00 – 4:00 pm.

Bring your dog to enjoy a swim this Sunday afternoon at the pool at 3:00 p.m. Bring a ball to throw or whatever toy they want to chase into the water. Feel free to swim with your pooch, should you like to do so. The event will run until 4:00 p.m. or so.

I will be accepting donations to CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education) in Pittsboro at the door.

In response  to a resident’s inquiry about whether this activity will require the pool to be drained and cleaned, Trent replied no additional maintenance will be incurred.

No need to drain the pool. The reason we do this after the season is over is because of the mess. However, no pack of dogs is as messy as winter, so no special cleanup is necessary.

This is the last swimming opportunity until spring. The regular 2016 pool season ended Sunday, September 18.
