Dinner Details
Our main dishes will be catered (Mexican this year from Anita's), but in order to keep costs down, we ask that each family:

  1. Bring an accompaniment, salad or dessert to share. Options for bringing a dish to share and details for assisting are offered on the RSVP form. NOTE: Water and lemonade will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own adult or other beverages (adult beverages not permitted if weather relocation to the church occurs).
  2. Have all adults (both parents if there are two in the mix) assist either before, during or after the event if at all possible.
  3. Pay a modest fee of $10 per person (maximum $50 per swim family).  If you have extended family who would like to attend, there will be an opportunity to pay additional $10/person.

Want to Skip Dinner and Attend the Activities/Awards/Slide Show?

That’s cool, we’re just happy you want to hang out with us.  Enjoy your extra-long afternoon nap and come at 6pm.  You’ll be just in time for the Coin Toss ™ and Celebrity Relays ™ in the Upper Pool.  Swimmers, wear your swimsuits and be ready to dive for treasure.  (Bring a dry change of clothes, too!) We do ask that you bring a dessert to share with the group.  We will have separate awards presentations for the 8-unders and 9-olders.  The Peggy Tripp Slide Show ™ should NOT be missed, so make every effort to stay til the end.
