Weekly Mailer
Dear Swimmers and Parents,
It was a unanimous vote! Both proposed amendments to the VJO bylaws were voted in.  Last Wednesday a Special General Membership Meeting was called to vote on two proposed amendments to the VJO bylaws.  Both items listed below were voted in.
  • Each family is to provide 30 hours of volunteer time over the course of a fiscal year.  
  • The wording has been modified for the frequency of the REAL representative meeting obligation from monthly, to as scheduled, reflecting current practice.
Thank you for your support,
Jennifer Thiem
VJO Head Swim Coach
