Lightning News - Friday Breakfast and Sunday's Awards Celebration
Hi Lightning families!
As we enter the last week of a wonderful swim team season, there are two fun events coming up for our Lightning swimmers and families—the swim team breakfast and the end of the year banquet.
After each morning practice on Friday, August 5th, swimmers will enjoy a swim team breakfast. Please send in a breakfast food item to share for EACH swimmer in your family. For example , if you have a swimmer in both the first and second session, please send food to share for both sessions. Ideas for food can be fruit, pastries, donuts, muffins, or casseroles. If your item requires a serving utensil, please provide. Also, please provide drinks on your own. This is a swimmers ONLY event to ensure we have enough food for the kids.
The end of year banquet will be held on Sunday, August 7th, the day after finals. The banquet will be at the SOUTH side pool and will be held rain or shine. This is a pot luck style banquet, with the swim team providing burgers and hot dogs. The banquet will start at 5:00 pm and includes time for families to swim, eat dinner, elect new board members, and then the presentation of awards for the year.
We ask that each family bring a dish to share (enough for approximately 15 people), based upon your last name.
A-F, please bring a dessert
G-K, please bring a pasta or casserole dish (e.g. mac and cheese, tortellini, etc.)
L-Q, please bring a salad (e.g. green, potato, pasta)
R-Z, please bring a fruit dish
Also, please bring drinks for your family, and if your dish requires a serving utensil, please provide.
We hope you can attend these fun events! You will be receiving an e-mail Evite for the banquet. Please, please RSVP via that e-mail. It is important that we know how many family members will be attending the banquet so that we can purchase the burgers and hot dogs for the appropriate number of people. If you have any problems with the Evite, please e-mail us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
See you soon! Please let us know if you have any questions!
