Hop, skip and a jump

And bring a rock
BRANFORD — The Connecticut Hospice intends to make an upcoming event a tradition by sponsoring the First Annual Captain Williams Stone-Skipping Contest at 1:30 p.m. August 29 on the beach outside the Hospice at 100 Double Beach Road, Branford.
Hospice therefore invites everyone to come and enjoy “a summer fling” on the beach before heading back to school, the organization said in a statement. Children are especially welcome; food and a magician will be part of the event to make it a fun filled afternoon for all, the statement said.
The contest is open to all ages and will have four categories: Little Ones 7 and younger; boys 12 and younger; girls 12 and younger; men; and women. Each contestant will be given three stones to skip, and the judges will award a prize to the winner of each category, the statement said. There is no entry fee, but donations will be gladly accepted to benefit The Connecticut Hospice, the statement said.
For more information about the contest, or about Hospice, visit or call 203 315-7684.
