Swim and Dive Team Update, July 15

Swim and Dive Team Update, July 15

I spent part of my morning today making sure that I’ve RSVP’d to all of our various upcoming events, and taking note of the various food items I’ve volunteered to bring to them as well.  Please be sure to do the same – we have lots of fun, special and important events these next two weeks!

We have several different events to commit to -

  • Spirit Breakfast – Friday, July 20 – commit to attending and to provide food/drink/supplies by tomorrow, Monday, July 16
  • Blue Divisionals – Saturday, July 21 - sign up for a volunteer job and concession items by Thursday, July 19.   
  • Team Party – Saturday, July 29 - commit and pay by Friday, July 20.  Please also sign up to help setup or clean up the party, or provide a few necessities (tents, coolers, waters, etc).
  • CMMD Charity Fundraiser - make your donation by Friday, July 20

*Also – please clean out your family folders!!  They are overflowing with team pictures, Club Champs ribbons and lots and lots of swim sibs treats!  We’ll need the space in the folders next week for all of the Champs ribbons, plus I’m sure the swimmers want to enjoy their swim sibs treats!
