HRWC hosted its Fifth Annual Baseline Lake Swim on Sunday!  The Huron River flows through Baseline Lake north of Dexter in the Chain of Lakes region. Every year, HRWC hosts this swim across Baseline Lake to celebrate the health of the watershed and the Huron River’s status as the cleanest urban river in Michigan.

It was a warm and sunny day on the lake- excellent swimming conditions- and we had a very happy crowd of swimmers! This HRWC tradition is a one-mile swim across Baseline Lake and back to the dock at the Michigan Sailing Club. This year we had a few swimmers swim the course twice for two-mile swim. After the swim, we gathered at the Sailing Club for great company, refreshments, breakfast, and a beautiful view of Baseline Lake. Please join us next year for this exciting event!

Our thanks to Baseline Lake residents Melinda Colquitt and Suzanne Van Appledorn and Michigan Sailing Club member Donna Snyder for their help making this event happen every year.

Thanks to Paul Cousins for volunteering his time at the event.

Thanks to the Commodore, Kevin Bosley, of the Michigan Sailing Club for his hard work and support at this event.
