183 people joined in the Swim for the Nicolas Denys Day Signature Event "Swim the Canal".

Another successful year for "Swim The Canal".  Each year since the beginning of the Nicolas Denys Day Signature event "Swim The Canal" the number of swimmers have continued to grow. This year the event saw 183 people take part,  made up of locals as well as visitors to the area who come out to join in the swim. Organizers Gordon and Ann Marie Kerr were over joyed by this years turnout.  Proceeds from this event will go towards a lighthouse maintenance fund again this year for the Jerome Point Lighthouse located in Battery Provincial Park and Campground. The organizers are preparing for when the local Lighthouse is declared a Heritage Lighthouse by Parks Canada, at which time the Light would be maintained by the Coast Guard and building maintenance undertaken by a community group and/or Battery Park.
