From the Meet Coordinator:  Reminder - Volunteer signups are now open.  Please log into your account and signup to volunteer for the  12& Under Stars & Stripes Meet.  The meet is a one session meet that will be held on Tuesday, July 16th.  Our meets cannot succeed without the help of our swim families so please sign up to volunteer to fulfill the 1 credit that is required during the long course season.  Older swimmers that are not swimming can help time to fulfill any volunteer requirements.   

The option to donate a gift card will not be made available until all volunteer slots are fulfilled.  At that time if you chose to donate a gift card, it must be a $30 gift card to Wal-Mart and must have the authorization code attached to receive credit.  Please mark your name on the gift card and place it in the payment box on the table in front of the ribbon room.

If you need help with signing up for a volunteer spot, please reach out to me at - Holly Argiris & Amanda Lavery

#CHASESTRONG: The Smith Family of Indian Creek are friends of the CGAC family.  Chase, their 17 year old son, is fighting cancer for the 4th time. Many of you have asked how you can help.  The Smiths will be traveling to Cleveland, Ohio every week for the next few months for treatment.  The CGAC Family will be preparing snack bags for them to take each time they travel.  How can you help?  There will be a box on the table (by the folder boxes) marked for ChaseStrong donations.  We will be collecting Visa gift cards to purchase these snacks.  Any gift cards that are left over will be presented to the Smiths for their travel expenses.   If you wish to donate, please deposit Visa gift cards in that box at any time.  If you have any questions, please contact Michele De Luna,  Thank you on behalf of the Smith family and the CGAC family for your support.
