It all came together at the Swim-A-Cross on Friday, Aug. 16, held at Centre Island Beach in Bayville. This year there were more people than ever raising funds for the nationwide organization that helps people in tragic emergencies, such as the attack on the World Trade Center. This year, 47 of the swimmers participated in memory of a loved one who perished on September 11, 2001.
