On Sunday, July 6, the Old Orchard Swim Club located on Evans Lane in Cherry Hill will be hosting the 46th annual Bob Rueppel Mini-Meet. This premier summer swim meet was established back in 1969 as a means to encourage young children, ages 9 and under, to experience and enjoy competitive swimming in a fun, relaxed and safe outdoor swimming environment.
Over the years, thousands of children throughout New Jersey have participated in this 61-event swim meet, which includes fun “kick-board” races for the youngest participants.
This year, the Old Orchard Swim Club is very proud to be saluting local businessman Bill Quigley for his outstanding support of amateur swimming in South Jersey and for over 25 years of dedicated sponsorship of this annual event. There will be a presentation ceremony at 8:05 a.m., just prior to the first swimming event.
