Lids Needed (8 oz lids found a Smart & Final)
Ideas for Food Items to Bring in:
fruit (cuties, strawberries)
cup of noodles
muffins / rolls
homemade soup (thank you parents, the homemade soup has been a big hit!)
PARENT HELP NEEDED at HOT CHOCOLATE NIGHT!
We are still in need of parent help for Hot Chocolate Night. Marlene Clement has been a great help in coordinating this fun event for our kids, but she cannot set up, serve food and clean up by herself. She needs your help to keep this event going for our kids. Did you know Thursday is one of our highest attended practice days? Let keep this event going, so our swimmers have a little something to look forward to on Thursday nights. It takes a village to raise a child.
