Today is International Volunteer Day, so it’s a good time to pause and thank ALL OF THE OSSC VOLUNTEERS for what you do personally to advance to sport of Synchronized Swimming in Ontario, Canada, and beyond.
While it’s dangerous to try to cover everyone because of the risk of forgetting someone, we’d like to thank these groups in particular:
- CLUB EXECUTIVES
- THE OFFICIALS
- OSSC COMMITTEE & BOARD MEMBERS
- THOSE BEYOND ONTARIO BORDERS (UANA, Synchro Canada, FINA, or wherever else)
Thank you to those who make a choice to spend their valuable time to help with the advancement of the Olympium Synchronized Swimming Club.
Thanks so much to Olympians: Karine Thomas (Synchronized Swimming) and Alexandra Orlando (Rhythmic Gymnastics), for making the 2016 OSSC Pub Night fundraiser such a success. Everybody appreciated your inspirational dialogue about the journey from local athletic clubs to the international stage of the Olympics.
This year the Olympium Synchro teams really got into the Halloween spirit. After a gruelling but satisfying Synchrothon, all of the athletes were able to unwind at the annual Halloween synchro party.
It seemed like everybody was there: the full cast of Super Mario Bros., superheroes, flowers, witches and Dr. Seuss characters – the party had it all. Rey, from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (opening in December at an IMAX theatre near you) even showed up.
Many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped with the Synchrothon and the Halloween party – it was a great success. But more importantly, thank you to the athletes who raised money in the morning and rocked the Halloween spirit in the afternoon.
