The Blue Jean Mile is back! Join us for a special Tuesday Trails to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Come ready to run or walk at least one mile with your fellow Swifters in your favorite pair of jeans, jorts, vest, skirt - whatever you’ve got!

Join your neighbors and fellow Swifters for a fun Friday summer evening! The Meetup On Main Street series is back, and the Swifters will be hosting a run/walk and a tent at their June 14 meetup! Other local businesses, restaurants, and shops will have tents, as well as music, face painting, and more - it’s for the whole family!
