   (FAST) as we try to raise the most money and show our Eagle Spirit!!! FAST is an organiza-
   tion dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for Angelman Syndrome, a severe neuro-
   logical disorder which causes seizures, loss of mobility and speech in 1 in 15,000 live births.
   In addition to our numerous fun-filled school fundraising activities we will have 2 tourna-
   ments to enjoy—an Eagle Softball Tournament (Saturday, September 1) and an Eagle Golf
   Tournament (Tuesday, September 4)!
