Feed the fireman/police

On October 10, the Daphne High School swim team and Middle School Team went to all Daphne fire stations and Daphne police stations to feed the workers. The athletes and their parents prepared many different foods like Boston Butt, buns, baked beans, cole slaw, potato dishes, different desserts, and many drinks. The team and parents thought that it would just be a good thing to do to give back to the hard working men and women who served. There were many swimmers from Daphne Middle who participated.
