Jamestowners help make bay swim most successful ever

Several Jamestown residents swam across Narragansett Bay Saturday for the 29th annual Citizen's Bank Save The Bay Swim.

The first islander to come on to the beach at Potter Cove was Patrick Murray and the first woman was Abby Anthony.

Also finishing were Todd Beran, Ken Rudman, Patrice Kilroy, Hannah Yoffa, Ned Flanagan, Jim Upton, and Dennis Nixon.

In all the swim was the largest for the organization with some 380 swimmers crossing the East Passage to support efforts to keep the bay waters clean.
