Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,

VJO Bin Clean-Out
Thank you everyone who helped out with our VJO Bin Clean-Out at the pool last Saturday Aug 25th from 9:30-12pm.  We had a great turn out and boy did it help!  We are now organized and ready to put on both meets in October and November.  Thank you again to all swimmers, parents, coaches and board members for your help with the Bin Clean-out.

 

Swim-a-thon Prize Party
We had a great Swim-a-thon Prize Party last Thursday August 23, 2012.  There were some great prizes given away.  Thank you to everyone that made the Swim-a-ton and swim-a-thon Prize Party happen. We would like to give a special thank you to our Swim-a-thon committee members.  Thank you Pam Henderson for creating all the posters, fliers, day of swim-a-thon lap sheets, and helping to collect swim-a-thon money & prizes. Thank you Julie Everett & Susan Bennett for putting the amazing prize baskets together. Thank you Tina Benberg for organizing the swim-a-thon potluck and ice cream social. Thank you Melanie Keilholtz for organizing, collecting, and keeping track of all monetary donations and the website. Thank you Claudia Quintana for helping with the overall idea and planning.  And finally thank you to Jean Augst, who helped with any questions the committee had along the way.  All together we raised over $11,000 for VJO.  Many many thanks to all of the VJO families who helped raise donations for the team and donated prizes for the swimmers.
