Greetings EastSide AllProDads!!! This is a reminder that our final meeting for this year will be this Friday May 6th. I cannot believe how the year has flown by. We will once again meet in the school cafeteria. Doors will open at 6:45am and the program will begin promptly at 7:00am. This month’s topic is “Finishing Well”. I am excited to announce that we will have a guest speaker this month. Coach Tripp Allen will be joining us to share his insights from a coaches’ perspective on how to finish strong. Coach Allen has recently joined the Brookwood HS football staff as their quarterbacks coach. He also held the position of Offensive coordinator at Walton HS for several seasons and remains very connected to the Eastside/Dickerson-Dodgen/Walton community. We look forward to having him come and share. The cafeteria staff will once again be preparing breakfast for us to purchase. Please help me help them plan accordingly by letting us know if you plan to attend. Please log into our website http://www.allprodad.com/2720 and click the RSVP link for the May 6th date so that we know you will be coming. We look forward to seeing you all and finishing our year with a fantastic get together. See you on the 6th!! Your EastSide AllProDad Captains
