First Annual Dog Swim

The first Annual Dog Swim in Governors Village was held Sunday, September 25, 2016.  Recreation Committee Chair Trent Leonard reported on the event today and sent along some photos.

Thanks to all those who came out with their dogs for the 1st annual Governors Village Dog Swim! We raised $74 for CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education) in Pittsboro, and we had approximately 15 dogs come through the gate. Fourteen of them were reluctant swimmers, but one Hungarian Vizsla (named Teddy I think) was the eager swimmer of the day running and jumping into the pool multiple times.

Until next year, have a good autumn!

The regular 2016 pool season ended Sunday, September 18. Deep thanks to Trent and the rest of the Recreation Committee for a successful swim year from the Governors Village community.
