A note from Mr. & Mrs. Smith:

Dear Dam Swim for Drew Swimmers,


Once again, our thanks go out to you for swimming the Dam Swim for Drew.  Everyone said it was tough this year battling the havoc the wind brought.  But you were there and you swam, and in doing so, you honored Drew, his sacrifice and his legacy.  Thank you for helping keep Drew’s spirit alive with your support of this event.  We hope to see you again next year!


– Karen and Randall Smith
