Jolyn was present today ~ did you get a chance to see all the great deals they had? Thank you for attending Last Gasp of Summer!

Back this year to our Volunteers were the Zone 3 Fire Explorers! What an amazing group of people! We had 101 swimmers coming out of the water and they made sure each and every one of them made it out of the water safely and were okay when they got out of the water. Thank you for volunteering at Last Gasp of Summer ~ we truly appreciate all your help.

Zone 3 Explorers train young men and women to become Firefighters of the future. If you are interested in a career in Firefighting please look them up - Zone 3 Fire Explorers.

We would also like to thank BUDU Racing for running the race with their awesome staff and timing equipment!
