On Sunday 8 November 2009, Warringah Aquatic Centre celebrated its 30th birthday by paying tribute to the officials of Warringah Amateur Swimming Association who had made valuable contributions to the sport and who had also worked on the Olympic Pool Committee set up to advise on building the facility.
The Mayor of Warringah Council, Michael Reagan, inaugurated an Officials’ Hall of Fame into which Warringah ASA Life Members:
Mrs Isa Wye, MBE, OAM, Mrs Joan Somerville, OAM, Mr Don Roberts, Mrs Sunny Bidner and Mr Jamie Jenkins were inducted. Also inducted posthumously were the late Mr Stuart Somerville, OAM and the late Mrs Marj Smith.
The Council also mounted an Honour Board in the foyer of the Centre, showing the names of WASA’s twenty-nine Life Members.
