Baseline SwimmersHRWC hosted its Sixth Annual Baseline Lake Swim this past 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!

We couldn’t have asked for better swimming weather. 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. Safety paddlers lined the swimmers path to ensure safety and keep them on track. After the swim, we gathered at the Sailing Club for great company, refreshments, breakfast, and a beautiful view of Baseline Lake.

Safety Paddlers ResizeOur thanks go out 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.

A special thanks to all of the safety paddlers who volunteered their time and effort which helped make this event safe for all swimmers!

Join us next year for the Baseline Lake Swim!
