Brothers, thank you for your great commitment to Special Olympics. The Aquatics competition will be held on Saturday, August 19. Note that the location has changed from the calendar that I sent you earlier in the year. Please let me know if you will be able to join us. I hope to see you there.
Fraternally, Phil Coup
SPECIAL OLYMPICS AQUATICS COMPETITION
Garland ISD Natatorium
2585 Firewheel Pkwy, Garland, TX 75040
SATURDAY – August 19, 2019 FROM 8AM TO 5PM
Knights and their spouses, children and friends will be awarding the medals to each of the athletes. There will be two awards areas (indoors) and will require 15 volunteers during each shift. Assisting the athletes of the Special Olympics is entertaining and worthwhile as well as a very rewarding experience.
This can serve as one of your State Council Service Program Awards necessary for the council to be awarded the prestigious Star Council Award by the Supreme Council. The women are invited to help with the handling of the medals and ribbons and the children are invited to cheer for the athletes when they receive their awards.
SATURDAY, August 19
SHIFT #1 8 AM To 12:30 PM
SHIFT #2 12 Noon To 5 PM
Feel free to work one shift or both shifts as you are able to work into your busy schedule. Any time that you can spend assisting the athletes of the Special Olympics is greatly appreciated.
We have been informed by the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Chair that all members of the Knights of Columbus and their family members are encouraged to assist with the upcoming Special Olympics events. All volunteers that do assist should be Safe Environment cleared; otherwise, they will be paired with a volunteer that has been cleared. Non-Catholic volunteers are welcome to assist with the presentation of awards and will be paired with a volunteer that has been safe environment cleared.
Please respond to Phil Coup, Diocesan Coordinator for Special Olympics, at 972-740-7309 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance from all of the Special Olympics athletes.
