First of all, many thanks to those of you who volunteered at the fundraiser on Saturday! I’ve done a lot of catering jobs with my family’s restaurant in Northern VA, but this was definitely another level of crazy! If you see any of these volunteers in the next couple days, please make sure to thank them: Swimmers Maria Garlock, Jack Bolvari, Braxton Psuik, Emma Cummings and Ashley Meyer and parents Mrs. McNamara, Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Madison did an excellent job taking orders and crowd control! To my fry masters: Mr.Psuik, Mr. Madison, Mr. and Mrs. Meyer – your enthusiasm for efficient french fry production helped keep spirits high and things entertaining! To the Madisons and Meyers, I cannot thank you enough for staying a double shift during our major rushes! You were life savers!
Practice this Week: Only Monday and Tuesday.
