PA Crew End-of-the-Year Celebration
PA Crew's year has come to its conclusion with a pool party that featured a full-fledged thunderstorm, lightning et al, which seemingly came out of nowhere and lasted for half an hour. It was then followed by bright sunshine and scorching humidity. The team huddled under the tent, shifted operations into the clubhouse for 10 minutes, went back out to eat, swam for 10 minutes, then concluded with awards and thank you presentations. If one were to describe PA Crew today and how they handled this past year, flexibility and tenacity would surely define this team. No matter the circumstance, the team adapts and moves forward. Even when they lost their practice site and head coach last spring, they tackled the challenge and overcame.
Fortunately, no further thunderstorms ensued and they were able to thank their coaches and board members while bidding a sad farewell to their seniors and their parents, outgoing board members, and volunteers. Congratulations PA Crew on a successful year. The future's so bright you gotta wear PA Crew gear. :)

We, as his parents, are grateful for all the opportunities he had and all the challenges he met here in the USA. In America he started as a junior and now he has successfully finished IB high school program.
