Dear Swimmers and Parents,
 
Thank you everyone for supporting Coach Tuffy last week.  It was great to see everyone at both Tuffy’s Proclamation and at Tuffy’s Retirements Party last week.  We had an exceptional turnout at Tuffy’s Proclamation at City Hall last Tuesday.  The Mayor of Vallejo himself, Osby Davis, even read and gave Tuffy his Proclamation at City Hall.  We had a turnout of over 400 at Tuffy’s Retirement Party on Sunday at the Dan Foley Cultural Center.  Thank you to everyone that made Tuffy’s Retirements Party possible.  We had a very hard working Planning Committee that helped to make this event happen. A special thank you to Hillary Schulte, Arron Jon Toch, Marylou Miguel, Diane Powell, Jean Augst, Dana Fouad, Lourdes Viray, Rebecca Kearney, Janet Mata, Cyndee Bogard, and Vicky Yee for all of their time and efforts in making such a great event possible! 
 
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Jennifer Thiem
VJO Head Swim Coach
