Vacant Role of Treasurer, Club Champs, BBQ and Canteen Volunteers Required

Hi Everyone,

We only have 3 regular swimming nights left.  We have really appreciated the support of everyone over the course of this year.  To make our club run successfully there is a great group of volunteers that help out.  We are on the hunt for a Treasurer next year.  Our club cannot continue to operate without a Treasurer, so we are looking for someone to step up and fill that gap.  Our Treasurer is responsible for the finances of the club.  In practical terms this means the regular banking, creating online payments and filing our accounts once per year and also attending committee meetings (about 5 per year).  Most of the work of the Treasurer can be done online.  We are about to embark on some improvements of the pool area, to ensure that happens we need a Treasurer in place to make sure our contractors can get paid.  As many of you are also members of the Graceville State School community, your children will benefit from any improvements we make to the school pool.  Examples of things we have done in the past have included purchasing a blanket for the pool and new lane ropes and had the change room floor upgraded.   We would love to do something that benefits both our school and Graceville Lightning.  If you are interested in the role, could you please contact me at

Don’t forget our Club Champs are on the 24th of March and we would love to see you and your children there if they have completed the required number of events during the swim season.  Please refer to our website for the details of how our club champs work.

This week we are looking for BBQ volunteers x 2 and canteen volunteers x 2.  If you can help out, even for an hour, please let me know.  Many of our regulars are not available this week so we really need some extra help.  We are also short of volunteers for the last 2 weeks of swim club, so if you can go onto our website and sign up or email me and let me know if you can help out it would be hugely appreciated. 

Enjoy the week swimming!
