Volunteer of the Month!
Congratulations to our COLA volunteer of the month Jen Pritchett! We cannot thank Jen enough for all that she does here at COLA. She welcomes all of our new families, paints, organizes us, and is there to help all of our swimmers, parents, coaches, and families with whatever they may need. If we need something, she is there to take care of it! A little message from Jen-- "Hello, my name is Jen Pritchett. I am the mother of Mcallister, 15 and Rafe, 7. Mcallister started swimming 3 years ago and is now in the senior group. Rafe has been swimming for one year and is getting stronger every day. Both boys and myself LOVE being a part of our COLA Family. We spend a lot of time at the pool, so we have been blessed to have so many wonderful families and coaches in or lives through COLA."
