“Service is the foundation of life. Without service, our lives have the same impact and meaning as a stick lying on the ground. No one remembers the sticks stepped on in the woods, but everyone remembers the flowers they see and smell in the meadow. If we serve and work throughout our life we will be like the flower that everyone remembers and always comes back. In our memory many more, especially those that we touched during our life will carry on the legacy of service, thus we had a positive impact on others and life had meaning. The whole meaning of life is to pass on to others that which we value most and what I value is service and throughout the rest of my life I will serve the community of my brethren to the best of my ability.”
We have an opportunity to bring Coach Tim Swords-Team Houston to Vintage for an Olympic Weightlifting Clinic. He offered to come and host a 3-hour clinic on either Saturday, December 16th at 3PM or Sunday, December 17th at 12PM. The cost will be $105 per person.
If you’re interested in attending, please let me know which day works best for you, or both and please comment if you prefer to do Snatch or Clean and Jerk in the clinic. Vote in the facebook poll here.
Last summer Coach Swords coached Sarah Robles to Team USA’s first weightlifting medal in 16 years. He has been running a non-profit gym out of his garage for decades training youth-adults.
