Hello SWAP Team —

This Saturday, April 14th, SWAP will be meeting at Chapelwood for a program of dancing, nutrition, soccer drills and fun.  Featuring interactive dancing (courtesy of Ronnye Cowell), a group presentation on nutrition (courtesy of Farley Hernandez), small groups (courtesy of the team leaders) — and soccer drills.  And of course we’ll have a healthy breakfast and lunch (courtesy of our stellar food team).

Donna and Dave will be handling the bus check-in — but we would appreciate any other help that is available.  If you can be at Spring Oaks Middle at the bus loop around 8:15, please let me know (

I haven’t heard from most of you re: your ability to come to SWAP this Saturday — if you are coming – can you please let me know by RSVP’ing to the calendar invite sent out a couple weeks ago – or email me.  Thank you!

I spend a lot of time updating this site with the goings on — schedules – small group lessons  etc — will you please take a moment and subscribe to it?  That way you’ll have all the news — and it’ll save Sondra and I quite a few steps….we appreciate it!
