Swim Breakfast

To All AGD, AGE, and Gold Parents: 

Wednesday, July 30th, we are having a breakfast for the swimmers.  This will take place after practice around 8 am.  I am looking for parents to provide the following items for the breakfast.  Egg Casseroles, variety of fruit, baked goodies, gallons of milk and juice are needed to feed these hungry swimmers.  Also, paper plates, plastic ware and napkins are needed.

Please reply to  This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it if you are willing to send an item or two.

Thank you for your willingness to feed the swimmers!

If your swimmer will be attending the breakfast on Wednesday, please let me know how many and the group they belong to  ASAP.  This will help me see if I need more of anything.

Thanks,

Beckie Eckelman
