Dick Sidner Receives Dorothy Donnelly Award
Open water service
Dick Sidner received the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award in 2008. He epitomizes our volunteer driven organization! He has been nominated for this award by two individuals who recognized him for his 20+ years of service to the Greater Indiana LMSC and the Noblesville Adult Swim Team. He is an active member of the USMS Open Water / Long Distance committee and most recently, he was the event director for the inaugural USMS 25 K National Championship, which attracted 45 solo swimmers and 140 relay swimmers. Dick worked for over a year planning the 25K and his ONLY goal was to create a safe and premier swimming event for the participants. Reviews from the participants have been astonishing; with all swimmers agreeing that it was a memorable event and one of the best run that most have participated in.
