November 28, 2009

Today was the Swim for Casey at Lancaster Aquatic Club.  What a great time.  Thank you to Casey Mann who put the whole thing together as her graduation project.  She definately gets an A+ in my book.  She had t shirts and wrist bands made incorporating orange (the color for leukemia) and Carolina blue (Casey's favorite color).  One of the grandmothers made orange ribbon chocolate pops.   A special thank you to Diplomat Swim team for bringing your whole senior team.  There were kids there from Parkland, Ephrata, Wilson, Bloomsburg and more.  It was nice to see the kids from the different teams all getting together for a common goal.  The camaraderie was evident everywhere.  I've always felt swimming has the best and kindest atheletes.

Last Sunday in church the pastor said "Only during the darkest moments can you really see the stars."  Today, I felt like I was in Big Sky country, surrounded by bright stars of all shapes and sizes. 


  1. What a wonderful tribute to Casey and how much the swimming community loves one of it's own regardless of where he swims! Way to to swimmers & parents!!

  2. Thank you for the updates! Swimmers are the greatest. Taylor had to head back to the West coast before the benefit but he will be sporting a Casey T shirt at his next college meet.

  3. It was so great to see everyone, especially Casey!!! Thanks for all the pictures, Peggy! We wouldn't have missed this event!!! It was so great to see all the people (old & new LAC members, other teams, family, etc...) who came out to support Casey. Casey, plus all the LAC people will always hold a special place in our hearts :-)
