Orange you happy to be swimming?

The Ladysmith-Chemainus Orca Swim Club members participated in the annual club swim-a-thon Friday.

Ethan Alsop, Samantha Barney, Mariah Jones and Bethany Geiger were four of the dozens of Ladysmith Orca Swim Club members to participate in the annual club swim-a-thon Friday to raise money to offset pool fees and expenses. During the swim-a-thon, club members swam lengths of the pool for up to two hours, taking orange-eating breaks to refresh their energy.  The Orcas raised $1,705 last year and $2,550 in 2010.  Swimmers are still collecting money towards this year’s total.
