Mystery swimmer

Remember our mystery swimmer from last week? We found out that this is none other than Craig James Barnard, who participated in the swim-a-thon at the YMCA to raise money for the Chaplains Emergency Relief Fund. Craig swam 30 laps! That’s pretty amazing, seeing as we don’t swim laps as a general rule.
