AIR QUALITY IMPROVES & SWIMMERS BACK IN WATER
It was great to see everyone back at the pool again yesterday. It is wonderful to finally have better air quality this week and be able to get all our swimmers back into the water again. We thank everyone for your patience last week while we had to cancel so many practices. It was also great to see so many of our swimmers keeping up their workouts over our Zoom Meetings. Great Job Swimmers!
 
 
 
 
 
 
VJO ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET
Please Fill Out RSVP Survey!
Believe it or not, it’s time for VJO’s Annual Awards Banquet!  This year has been challenging to say the least, but nevertheless we would still love to celebrate our 2019-2020 swim season and the accomplishments of our swimmers.
 
In order to safely plan for this event, we need your feedback.  Our team has secured the Ascension Episcopal Church in Vallejo on Saturday, 9/26/2020, to hold our awards banquet OUTSIDE in the back lawn area.  There will be strict social distancing guidelines in place where families will need to sit 6 feet away from others and also must wear masks.  Traditionally, this event would be a potluck, but due to the circumstances, we will be foregoing the potluck this year.
 
Depending on the interest and how many people RSVP, our plan is to break it up in two sessions (1 ½ hour each session) to allow proper social distancing.  We would also ask families to bring their own lawn chairs and/or blankets.
 
The VJO Board and Coaches would like to thank you for all your support and ask you to please click on the link below and help us prepare for a safe and fun Awards Banquet!
WHAT:      VJO Awards Banquet
WHERE:  Ascension Episcopal Church (BACK LAWN), 2420 Tuolumne St, Vallejo
WHEN:     Saturday, September 26, 2020 - 2:00 - 5:00pm
 
Stay Safe and Go Sharks!
