Dear New Jersey USAG,
“I’d like to start off by saying thank you! Thank you for your professionalism and your excellence in coaching. I’ve been stopping by at meets / judging competitions and I’m constantly amazed watching you work. Thank you for treating our athletes with kindness and care, every child is a gift and they all deserve to be treated special.”
We regret to inform you that Lynn Perrott, our Region 7 Chairman of many years, passed away yesterday shortly after entering hospice care.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Many people have asked how we can help our Region 7 Chairman Lynn Perrott and her family.
We have created a great campaign for you to send your support called “Stretch Across the Region-Support for Lynn!”
If you or your club would like to support Lynn’s fight, please read the linked letter below to find out how.
Have a great Family Day!
