happy 2nd switiversary!!!

On Tuesday, September 12, we kicked off our running shoes and put on our party shoes to celebration TWO YEARS of Swifting! There was food, friends, and plenty of prizes and awards. We're so grateful for everyone who was able to come out to to celebrate being part of this awesome community--the people make it what it is, and we're so glad you all choose to make the Skokie Swifters part of your life. Here's a few photos of the festivities.

It’s not September - it’s #SWIFTEMBER! 

The Swifters turn two years old this month, and we are celebrating for the next 30 days by posting memories, sharing fun times we’ve had, and reminiscing about all the Swifter spirit we’ve shared - please join us! Post a pic of your favorite Swifter event. Share a story about a Swifter that is special to you. Tell us about the first Swifter event you attended. Make a video about what the Swifters mean to you. Post a collage of your favorite Swifter moments…

However you choose to celebrate SWIFTEMBER, be sure to snap a pic, tag us (@skokieswifters), and use the hashtags #SWIFTEMBER, #SwifterSpirit, and #StaySwifty - and that's it! You can also send us your pics directly. We look forward to seeing your Swifty memories!

Thanks to Marie Hieronymous for making our Swiftiversary graphics!
