Juneteenth Day Announcement 

 

One of the things I love most about the Ben Lomond Swim Team is our diversity. We come from many different parts of the world and yet our team joins together every year to do things that 150 years ago wasn’t allowed. Even today, we may experience the limitation of not accepting differences. But at BLST, we celebrate our differences because we are ONE. We can also thank early team founders and members that have put deeper meaning to, "Once a DUCK; Always a DUCK!"

Today is a federal holiday commemorating the announcement of end of slavery. There is still a long way to go to eliminate discrimation, but I know that we can swim as a team today because of what  the Emancipation Proclamation started so many years ago. Thank you for being a part of this team and helping to build a brighter future for our children.
