60th Anniversary Swimmers

L-R: Joan (Lynch) Deeley, Isabel (Young) Crary, Pat (Nickels) Allan, Norma (Douglas) Gant, Iris (Forbes) Reilly, Mary (Rutherford) Jones, Elaine (Humphreys) Welch, Joan (Coombes) Craig, Donna (Bristow) McGillis

The PDSHOF had some very special guests Thursday June 16th as the 1955 Pan Am Games Silver Medalist Ornamental Swim Team kicked off their annual reunion with a visit to the Hall.  The team stopped for a group photo in front of the display which showcases their outstanding achievements.

In addition to the 1955 Pan Am Silver, this team also claims an appearance in the American Athletic Union championships in Florida, and participation in the British Empire Games, (known today as the Commonwealth Games), in Vancouver, where they claimed a Canadian title, the year before.  And, they won nationally, and at the North American championships in Niagara Falls, N.Y. in 1953.

Not surprisingly they are still going strong!
