Sunrise Swimming Families, I want to thank you all for making tonight's Sizzler such a success. We had more swimmers (and parents!) than ever before, and those of you who volunteered help it to run so smoothly. I appreciate everyone's dedication, hard work, and commitment to our Sunrise Swimming program. Looking forward to more fast swimming this weekend! Christi
