Merrylands 45th Anniversary Breakfast

Former Club Members were invited to attend and participate in our Club Races on Saturday, 1st March, 2014 to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Merrylands Amateur Swimming Club.

Twenty Five former Merrylands Club Members joined in the fun with our current members, and 9 even brought their cossies with them to have a swim down memory lane. Many stories were shared with former members reminiscing about the good old days and swapping stories with the current members. A slideshow was displayed of photos representing the clubs long history and swimmers young and old enjoyed looking at how the pool, the club (and the "fashions"!) changed over the decades.

Our normal races were followed by a bacon and egg BBQ. Mrs Glad Pye, Foundation and Life Member and Jim Hayes, former Club President and Life Member cut the celebratory cake to mark the occasion.

Thanks to all who have been involved over the last 45 years and made the Club the fantastic place it is today. We look forward to seeing what the next 45 years has in store for us!
