Many have reached out to us to thank us for our volunteer commitment over the past several years. Thank you for your kind words. There is still time for someone to choose to run an abbreviated season within COVID and HOA guidelines if anyone wants to step forward. The last FSSL Board Meeting (Frederick Summer Swim League) is this Tuesday the 11th at 7pm. This will be a Zoom meeting. *Only Team Reps attend these meetings. If someone is interested in taking on the Team it would be beneficial to sit in on this meeting. Kim and Sarah will plan to attend this meeting as well and inform the League our position for the summer. These meetings are held throughout the year, monthly or every other month depending on the Agenda. They will take a break for the summer and start again in September. Even if no one chooses to take over this summer, parties will be needed for next summer and the planning will start in September with these meetings. Kim and I would be happy to attend and introduce the next Team Reps, but will not plan to attend after September.
While we know this may disappoint many of you, the Wirths have volunteered for 7 years now (4 running concessions and 3 running the Team), the Stewarts have run the Team for 3 years: we are ready to turn the reigns over. As so many families participate each summer, we encourage you to discuss with a couple of families and consider taking this on. We have lots of information to pass along to make the transition smooth.
