Barry’s Bay swim program wraps up

BARRY’S BAY – It was a perfect day to take a dip in the refreshing waters of Kamaniskeg Lake on August 15. It was also a perfect day for a party.

That afternoon, the Township of Madawaska Valley held a special wrap-up party for the swimmers enrolled in Combermere and Barry’s Bay’s swim programs.

Mayor, councillors and staff volunteered their time to serve a hearty barbecued lunch to the swimmers and their families. Afterwards, the swim instructors held a presentation to acknowledge the most improved swimmers from both Combermere and Barry’s Bay. This year, both communities had two sessions, so a boy and girl were picked from each community and session.
