Fourth of July 2022
We are excited about the upcoming July 4th fun in Montevideo. The parade theme this year is National Parks. We are excited to see what people come up with for their parade entries.
To sign up to be in the parade, fill out this google form. Any group of neighbors can be in the parade; it doesn’t have to be by street. Grab a few friends and come up with an idea based on the theme and join in the parade!
To purchase meals for the BBQ or register for the race (coming soon), go to our website shop. After submitting your order, watch for an invoice and pay online. (The invoice will not be immediate, but will be sent within a day.)
To volunteer to help with the race, set up, food service, or clean up, click here.
Watch for a newsletter on your doorstep later this week. (See below.)

LIFEGUARD JOBS FOR SUMMER 2022
We are getting close to the summer pool season and will be looking to hire lifeguards to work this summer. Soon we will have an application ready to send out to interested applicants, then we’ll interview and fill the positions. If you know anyone who is interested in applying for a lifeguard job at the Montevideo pool this summer, have them reach out to Kerry Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Message from the Piranhas Swim Team Board
Hi MIA Homeowners,
The Piranhas Swim Team Board is working behind the scenes to get things up and running for our 2022 Piranha swim team season. We will begin to interview for coaching positions this week. We have a sizing kit coming to help people determine suit sizes. And apparel is being set up in the online portal.
However, thus far we have not received enough registered swimmers to be able to participate in the league swim meets. We are at risk of not being able to have a team this year. We love our Montevideo Piranhas and want to see it succeed but we need more swimmers and families and volunteers in order to make that happen.
We understand that this year many families may be looking forward to traveling and may be hesitant to add swim meets to their summer plans. We have been talking about how best to handle this. The league sets requirements for our swimmers to attend three or more of the regular season meets in order to qualify for Champs. We are required to host meets and staff meets with volunteers, so if we don’t have enough families there to sign up for the volunteer shifts, it is just an impossibility to move forward as part of the league.
We have set a date of April 1 to close registration. We will assess at that point if it is possible for us to continue with our swim team season. So if you are planning on swimming with us, please register by April 1. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d love to hear from you. (email@example.com)
