GLOUCESTER Thunderbolts Swimming Club and the Gloucester Olympic Pool will celebrate 50 years with an anniversary dinner on November 9.
The celebrations will include a family fun day at the Gloucester Olympic Pool on Saturday in conjunction with the annual Rotary Relay.
On Saturday night there will be a dinner dance at the Gloucester Rec Centre with entertainment by local band the Bowden Brothers with an open bar.
“The committee has been writing to all past presidents, life members and a few past committee members to let them know what we are planning, invite them along and to ask for some help,” Thunderbolts treasurer Dave Windred said.
“It’s a daunting task tracking down 50 years worth of past club members and we would greatly appreciate some help.”
The club is also looking for memorabilia to display such as old photos, trophies or newspaper articles.
Those interested in attending or helping out can send a letter to PO Box 42, Gloucester 2422, message the club on its Facebook page Gloucester Thunderbolts Swimming Club, or contact Dimity Bowden (president) on 6558 7590 or Dave Windred (treasurer) on 6558 2957.
