On the Dry Side:  News from the Secretary’s Desk

April 2022

Greetings, 757swim!  

Enclosed you will find information on upcoming events and reminders.

For those interested in running for a position on the Board of Directors, the application is now available on the website and due by April 25th.  Please download and complete the application, e-mailing it to [email protected] .

Spirit wear should arrive next week.  An email will go out as soon as it is available for pick-up.

A special thank you to those who helped during the two landscape committee mulching days:  the O’Brien family, Katherine Sokolowsky, Alexander Radkevich, Tuska Benes, and Harper Fly.  It was great to meet a few of you and see swimmers lending a hand.  

Congratulations to all of our swimmers during their championship meets!  I enjoyed seeing pictures of the fun they had.  Meet reports are now available under the News tab .

“...the satisfaction that I have is when things work out for our kids, and that’s what brings me joy.  And I don’t know how you do the job any other way but with a heart of service and appreciation for the kids.” –Coach Hubert Davis (I am a Tarheel, and sadly basketball season has come to an end.)

–Evie Burnet, Secretary
