SJ Legends March Update
We have a few important dates and meets coming up in the month of March that you should be aware of as well as some new information.
This is a reminder to please not park in the Aquarena Tim’s “Quick Stop” waiting area when waiting or picking up your swimmers (particularly in the morning). The Aquarena staff has received repeated complaints from customers about parents taking up these spaces as they wait. Please park in the parking lot while waiting for your swimmers.
We are getting ready to undertake one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. Our Facebook auction will start Friday, March 16 at 12:00PM (noon) and bidding will end 8:00PM, Saturday March 24. Please donate! If you have any questions or if you have something you wish to donate, please contact Peter Bull at: firstname.lastname@example.org
