END OF SEASON CELEBRATION

For those of you who have RSVP’d and are attending the end of season celebration this Sunday (7/24) you can find details about the event (including times, agenda, address, and a Google map link) on the End of Season Celebration page on the Overlook Swim Team Website.

A few quick notes:

  • The venue has a beautiful nearby lake, but we ask that small children be supervised, at all times, when outside on the lawns. 
  • Due to catering restraints, we will not be able to accept walk-ins at the event. 
  • Reminder: please see the email about Coaches gifts sent on Sunday 7/17
  • Looks like it’s going to be a bit warm on Sunday, so dress casually and comfortably. 
  • We could use some parent volunteers to help teardown and transport items back to Overlook Pool after the event.
