Fundraising – Melanie Summer Fundraiser – This summer the Monarchs will run the pool concession stand! The concession stand will open on May 25th, Memorial Day and we need your help to ensure that this is a successful fundraiser. All profits from the concession stand will benefit the Monarchs and go toward our spring floor. We need your help to keep the operating cost to a minimum. . .don’t worry we are hiring workers to man the concession stand, but we are asking for donations. A sign-up genius will follow.
Team Building – Stephanie On Thursday, May 14, we will have a team-building event at Zip City (in Sports Plus) at 10765 Reading Rd.

Families can show up anytime between 3-11pm and pay $20 per person (child or adult) for 3 hours of trampolines, zip lines, and a rock wall. The $20 also includes two slices of pizza and a pop. To do the zipline and rock wall, children must be over age 3 and more than 30 inches tall. Anyone over 250 lbs. cannot participate.

Some families have said they’d arrive around 4:30 if others want to maximize playtime with their friends/teammates and still be out of there by 7:30-8pm. There is a restaurant/bar within Sports Plus and plenty of seating where parents can watch their children, so adults are welcome to socialize, too, without paying the $20 to be on the equipment. Check out for more info, and watch for flyers in the family folders.

Contact Stephanie Haarlammert with any questions.

Nationals – Tricia Please forward your travel dates and hotel info to Mariellen so that she can add it to the Nationals Roster.
