Summer Sun Swimming Fun

Greetings Volunteer!
We're very sorry for the late advise.  We only managed to arrange everything
today as in today!!!
But the good news is that we will be fulfilling the kids' dream to go
swimming.  Finally!  After they've been asking this from us every
year since we've been with them.
This Saturday April 27, 2013 we will have the chance to give joy to the
children again!

1:30 PM Meet at He Cares Center at 9 Mines St., Proj. 6, QC
        Jeep will carry kids and some of us will have them hitch
        a ride going to Ateneo Grade School Swimming Pool (Katipunan Ave.)
    - orientation for swimming (proper behavior in the pool, very important!)
    - swimming fun and games
    - snacks will be served to kids (water) from our funds
We will end by around 3:30 pm       
(*vehicle-less volunteers, please proceed to Ateneo already
and the pool area will know it's our activity time there
under my name and He Cares foundation)
With the summer heat, this time will be a chance for the kids to
cool off.  We've asked Carmi Bonifacio to lead the water activities
for the children.  She has gracefully accepted!
Please bring:
P40 for entrance if you wish to swim with kids
swimsuit, if you're swimming
Water and snacks to share
This Saturday is coming and we hope that:
1. Everyone will be safe.
2. We will have the right number of kids 30 and 20 adults to watch them.
3. We will have sufficient refreshments for the whole gang.
4. That we won't have a problem with the swimming attire requirement.
5. That everyone will have fun!!!
