Dear OLGC Families,

I look forward to seeing everyone this weekend for one of the highlights of the OLGC year: February Frenzy! Whether you have a house leaguer or not, please come out and watch some great basketball, eat some delicious food, get your house league spirit wear, buy some Girl Scout cookies, and enjoy the company of your fellow OLGC families. Special thanks to the house league coordinators and coaches and the 4th and 5th grade parents for organizing the concession and spirit wear sales.

And next Friday night, it's the Talent Show at 7 PM in DeSales Hall. Come see acts starring the preschoolers, the teachers, the kindergarten and hopefully the 8th graders. It's not too late to enter the show. Get your act together and sign up at wildcatsgottalent@gmail.com before 12 noon on Friday, February 22. Concession sales, including beer and wine, will begin at 6:15 PM. VIP Seating, with wine, beer, and bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cake, is still available. Please contact Sarah Kodrowski at wildcatsgottalent@gmail.com to reserve seating or with any questions.

Finally, thanks to Alison Lockard for organizing our annual afternoon of Tubing. Much fun was had by all.

Please let me know if you have any questions and Go Wildcats!

Peace,
Beth
