Perrigo Swim

swimmer

The article on this page is a simulation of an actual article published in 1934 which detailed the swim that Jane Perrigo made around the shoreline of Sylvia Lake. The only copy of this article is faded and difficult to read. But the words on this simulated clipping are exact.

Jane Perrigo was 16 years old when she made her courageous swim. Some years later, she became the mother of Olive Perrigo (Horning), who still owns the green cottage on Hotel Bay on Sylvia Lake's North Shore.

Is there anyone who will take Jane Perrigo's challenge and make the five mile swim?
