MIDDLE SCHOOL MEETS – LCA is responsible for running middle school home meets.  This is an excellent change to pick up a lot of volunteer credit.  Further, it is a great time to get trained on specific positions like DAK Operator as well as set up and tear down.  Sign ups for positions are active on the website.  WE NEED SOME FOLKS TO LEARN THE DAK SYSTEM IN THE CROWS NEST!

SWIM LESSONS – Sign ups are ongoing.  Please share and refer.  Spaces are limited.  More information as well as registration is online.

TRASH BAGS – We have them in stock.  If you need more, please contact Tina Howell.  The trash bag fundraiser is basically an all the time thing and we usually end up having repeat customers throughout the year.

COMMITTEES – There are still openings on all committees.  If you are interested in finding out more about what these groups do and what is involved, please let me know.  There is something for everyone so whatever your talents and passions there is a place for you to shine. 

***We are just starting to ramp up for all our Summer events and can use your help.  Especially on the meet committee.  If you are interested in helping me on this committee, please let me know.

Have a great week!
