AIR QUALITY IMPROVES & SWIMMERS BACK
It was great to see everyone

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

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.
