UPCOMING EVENTS:
 
FOOD DONATIONS NEEDED for RELAY MEET
This Saturday we would like to have a small snack bar area available to swimmers and families with just breakfast items. This will provide us an opportunity to fund raise a bit for our team. We are expecting 60-80 swimmers and their families to attend. With that in mind, we are asking that each of our VJO families use the chart below to bring 1 of the items to the meet on Saturday. Any leftover non-perishables will be used for our home meet in October or for Hot Chocolate Nights this winter. Each of the VJO board members will be chipping in so that we have Starbucks Coffee to sell.   - Many Thanks from the VJO Board
