JAWS Banquet/Pool Party
(this is a team hosted event)
We want to close another great JAWS season by having a celebratory banquet pool side! Be sure to eat dinner before you come because we will be having dessert and drinks (served up in the balcony). If you are willing to donate a dessert or gallon of milk, please let Jen know (email@example.com)! The pool party is for all JAWS members and their immediate families. We will be doing awards in the middle of the pool on the big bulkhead at 6:15pm and then will have our pool party continue until 8:00pm. We hope all family members will enjoy the pool!
The coaches will act as lifeguards, but not be sitting in the chairs (they will be playing in the pool)! Please be responsible for your family members. For those of you unaware of our pool rules please see our webpage (NOTE: ONLY Coast Guard approved flotation devices may be used in the pool and all lifejackets must stay between the roped off area and the shallow end wall).
We would like to celebrate each child’s season by awarding every 12 & under a trophy and a JAWS certificate to all members of our team. If your child cannot attend the banquet, you may pick up his or her awards at the Jenison Community Education Office (located in the Center for the Arts – corner of Bauer and 20th) between August 16th and August 31st.
Each JAWS season we like to present our coaches with a small gift to show them our appreciation. For your gratitude, please consider giving a small gift of $5.00 per swimmer to show your thankfulness if you are able. You can place your gift in the black pool mailbox prior to the banquet, email Jen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for an electronic gift payment, or bring to the pool concession stand the night of the banquet. Each JAWS coach will receive their gift with a card signed by all of the kids. Thanks to all who have already donated to our coaches’ gift so far!
We will not be doing an RSVP, but the JAWS swimmers who arrive on time will be able to sign up for our raffle (between 6- 6:10pm) that we will have during the water portion of the party.
6pm arrival --> Sign up for raffle before 6:10pm --> 6:15pm awards presentation!
*Parents sit in the balcony toward the middle! As soon as awards are over, JAWS pool party will start and continue until 8pm. Kids and families can go to the balcony at their leisure and get some dessert and milk (must wear shoes)!
*THOSE WHO ARRIVE ON TIME AND SIGN UP FOR THE RAFFLE BEFORE 6:10PM HAVE THE CHANCE TO WIN PRIZES*
