A summer swim team for kids ages 5-18 in San Jose, California



Memorial Service for Daniel Nichols

Dear Penguins and Parents:

We are deeply sorry to announce that Daniel Nichols passed away on April 15. Daniel was on the swim team since 2007, and our hearts go out to his parents, Kevin and Sue, and the entire Nichols family.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 29 at 11:00 am at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1715 Grant Road in Los Altos.

In honor of Daniel, please consider a donation to the AFSP Out of the Darkness Walk “Team Daniel” (www.theovernight.org).

This has been a very difficult year for our penguin family, and we are truly grateful for the love and support of our swim team community.
