Hello Norac Families,

Our AGM will take place on Sunday May 27, 2018 at 4:00 pm, (just prior to our year end banquet) at the Cobourg Community Centre. This is your club and we need to have as many attendees as possible to plan for the 2018-2019 swim season. Board elections will take place at this AGM.

Becoming a board member gives you the opportunity to maintain what you like about the club and help make improvements where needed.With many older swimmers graduating from high school and leaving the club, there are several positions to fill for the coming year.We need new parents to join the board as part of our succession planning. Parents from all swim groups are encouraged to put their name forward.The commitment includes attending monthly board meetings. The focus of each board member must be the well being and future of the club as a whole.
