Early in the morning on Saturday, August 13 Cayuga Lake will turn into “a bowlful of bubbling mermaid stew” when more than 300 women will swim across the lake with Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare. Women Swimmin’ is a community swim (not a race!) to raise funds for Hospicare & Palliative Care Services. Now in its 13th year, Women Swimmin’ has earned a certain amount of mystique in our area. Melissa Travis Dunham will share her thoughts on what makes The Swim special. Melissa is Manager of Community Relations at Hospicare and has been involved with Women Swimmin’ for 6 years.
