Congratulations to Glad Pye who was a recipient of this year’s Premier’s Award for Active Citizenship. The award was presented at a lunch celebrating the efforts of local volunteers on Thursday, 29th November.

Glad has volunteered at our club since it was formed in 1968 and also gives her time at District and State level. She says she enjoys volunteering because it gives her a chance to give to the community.

“I can’t believe I won this award,” she said. “It’s wonderful to be acknowledged for something you love doing.”

“When I volunteered at the Paralympics I had to escort athletes to the winners’ podium and it was amazing to be a part of that. I love what I do.”

November was a big month for Glad, not only did she receive the Premiers Award but she was also named NSW Swimming Volunteer of the Month.

Glad will be in action again this weekend at the NSW Metropolitan Championships being held at the Sydney Aquatic Centre. We would like to thank her and her husband Jim for all the work they put in at Club.
