Tannum Sands club mark golden day

TANNUM Sands Surf Lifesaving Club will mark 50 years existence on Saturday, July 24.

The occasion is expected to bring together 150 past and present members for a night of reminiscing and celebrating of the achievement.

Tannum Sands Surf Lifesaving Club president Tony Davies said the club originally formed in 1936 in Gladstone, however moved to Tannum Sands in 1960, taking on a name change and growing from strength to strength over the past 50 years.

“The anniversary is an opportunity for us to recognize the past and the lifesavers who helped us get to where we are now, and a celebration of our history,” Davies said.

“Recognising the club’s life members as true inspirations to our club will no doubt be one of the highlights of the night when they are applauded.”

Of the club’s highlights, the State Titles held back in 1984 was up there with the more memorable, Davies said.

The president said the club was proud of its achievements in the last half a century, and he was sure current members would continue working to improve the lifesaving club and ensure it thrived into the future.

“Each generation gets a chance to make their history and the club’s and this generation can see they can build a foundation for the next 50 years,” he said.

“We’ve had the best volunteers you could ever ask for.”
