That was some great swimming at the Daniel Jaekel Friendship Classic and the best volunteer support we've seen in quite some time!
Thanks to everyone for answering the call. Many of you asked what more you could do for your child's club . . . and we found some projects in need of some TLC.
Publicity – Help write and submit LFSC news and meet results to local media outlets. Coordinate the distribution of LFSC posters and publicity materials throughout the community.
Warrior Wednesday Snacks – Help promote team spirit by coordinating a snack after our special “Warrior Wednesday” practices this summer.
Squad Parents – Help plan social events for our Mighty Ducks, Yellow, Green and Bronze squad swimmers.
Contact Lauren Jacobs at firstname.lastname@example.org or one of the coaches if you are interested in helping with one of these activities. Any of our Board members (Lauren Jacobs, Dave Holecek, Mark Holzer, Julie Manning, Anne deGot, Margit Metsur and Tracey Vondra) would also be happy to talk to you about other ways to volunteer for the club.
Remember . . . the best way to help your child be a better swimmer is also the best way to meet other swim families and have FUN!
