At the Barrington Area Development Council’s Citizen of the Year Award Dinner, where our good friend and A Long Swim advisor Bob Lee was crowned, Doug proves that he always has his A Long Swim literature at the ready. Or he’s just trying to impress the ladies.
At our table that evening we met an extremely nice guy whom will be invited to our big celebration when all of this is over. He listened to Doug tell his story about the English Channel and how he is swimming it to raise money for ALS. The guy tossed him his business card and said to put him on the list. He’s on the list. And this is where I have to say that doing all of this is good and all but we just made a new friend that night. I love that part. I wish I would have taken his picture.
