Many locals gained their start with lessons run by the Dunedin Swimming Club, guiding generations of youngsters to hold their head above water.
The club is now reaching out to former members to join anniversary celebrations.
President Kevin Phillips said there were two periods to the club’s inception.
The club began in 1904 operating from the Victoria Baths, in Frederick St. The open-air baths, also know as Morgan’s Baths, were built by George Morgan in 1894, on reclaimed land extending out into the harbour.
Mr Phillips said it was a privilege to have been president of the club for about 30 years.
‘‘You are teaching grandkids, you taught children 20-something years ago, and now their children are here.’’
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 100th celebrations had been postponed until this year, and the club would be holding an informal celebration on Saturday, November 27, at Arana College dining room.
The club is encouraging former members to book, share photos or reminiscences, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
