If anyone would like a professional photo taken of their son or daughter paddling at CHEEMA please note that Marshall Hewitt will be at the club this Friday, August 8th and Monday, August 11th.
These shots are taken on the water and have been favourites of many in the past!! Please remember to wear your CHEEMA singlet and bring a cheque payable to CHEEMA AQUATIC CLUB for 25$ for a beautiful 8X10.
Proceeds going towards fundraising and a wonderful keepsake for years to come!
Samples will be available with Kiera Hewitt at the club this week for viewing.
The Cheema Masters would like to thank everyone for their support of the wine show in June. It was a great evening. We are still finalizing the numbers but to date almost $9000 has been raised which will be used to buy boats for Cheema.

Summer Canteen Update
Everyone loves the convenience of the Cheema Summer Canteen! In order to run a successful canteen we rely of parent volunteers - every shift needs at least one parent volunteer (although 2 parents are preferable) and two athletes (over 14) to run the canteen during lunch hours.
No need to carry money - To make it easier we encourage that parents run a tab for their athlete(s) throughout the summer so they do not have to carry money. During the Open House on June 27th you can drop off cash, a cheque or you can use your credit card for canteen or send a cheque in with your athlete to open a tab during club hours or drop off in the mailbox. Feel free to include a school size picture as well to keep with their tab.
The canteen can only be successful with the help of parent volunteers and the athletes who work the canteen window. It is also a great way to get involved with the club, you can sign up for one shift or several depending on your availability. Please email me to be added to the schedule. Parents are volunteers and athletes are paid $!5 each for their shift. (Canteen Shifts are 11:15-1:30 with serving hours open 11:45am - 1:00pm so shifts include prep time and clean up time).
Thank you for helping us make the Cheema Summer Canteen successful for our Athletes, Please email Jo-anne at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for your Canteen shift!
