Volunteer of the Month!
Congratulations to our COLA volunteer of the month Dave Baker! We cannot thank Dave enough for all that he does here at COLA. He has been instrumental in the successful 2014 high school swim season. He ran both the computer and the Colorado timing system at every high school meet and did it with a smile! A little message from Dave-- "Hello, I'm Dave Baker. My sons John Michael, 14 and Thomas,12 along with my wife Margo, have been with COLA for over five years. COLA is the best swimming program in Louisiana and is a true FAMILY. We've been here for swim-a-thons, school meets, dual meets, districts and state. Don't forget Mrs. Margo's COLA Christmas Gumbo each year at the party! Our kids have made so many friends while at COLA and the coaches are tops in the sport!"
