Welcome to the first of my regular President reports. I will be keeping all members updated on movements within the club.
Below is a small excerpt from my report presented at the 2018 AGM. I think it is extremely important to acknowledge all members of our club.
First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our committee members. Often in the background, their hard work and dedication is an asset to the Boronia Swim Club.
Our committed coaches, who are the backbone of BSC, providing not only coaching but guidance, discipline, mentoring and promoting confidence in our swimmers.
I of course, need to pay tribute to our swimmers and their families who are the heart and soul of the club. Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank and acknowledge the hard work and committment of Ian Liebler our previous President.
Despite minimal attendance, committee reports for 2017/2018 were confirmed and accepted. Currently the Boronia Swim Club Committee consists of:
President - Viki Simon
Vice-President - Tami Penney
Secretary - Lauren DeMarchi
Registrar - Sharon Miller
Metro East Delegate - Andrea Weinbergs

There are however, two positions still available on our Committee - Treasurer and Swim Director. These positions are extremely important to the club and I encourage anyone who is interested to contact me. You will be provided with a huge amount of support and encouragement from all members.
What a fantastic result with 44 swimmers participating - Let's keep the momentum going for all aggregates.
Thanks to Lauren Banks for her colourful and well-versed commentary of the races. I think everyone will agree with me that without a doubt, this needs to be a regular occurrence. Well done Lauren!
A big thank you to Graham Dutton (race starter) who attended his last aggregate.
New updated swim caps and shirts will be available shortly.
Going forward into the new season, my plans (and I have a lot of them) is to continue to see BSC grow even further. Watch this space............
