50th Anniversary Dinner

 

In 2001 / 2002 season Parramatta City Swim Club celebrated it's 50th Anniversary. Of the functions held during the year, the highlight was definitely the Anniversary Dinner held at Parramatta Leagues Club on 18 October 2001.

Members from every era of the club’s history attended. Even a few past members of the Granville Swimming Club that existed from 1936 to 1951 were in attendance.

Much thanks must be given for those who brought raffle tickets. Over $350 was raised for CANTEEN.

This charity is very special to the club as one of our recent past Club Captains was fighting cancer at the time of the dinner. Unfortunately Emma lost her battle with the disease in May 2002.

Many thanks must go to Parramatta City Council and Parramatta Leagues Club without whose help the dinner would not have been possible.
