Arthur Parkyn

Surf Lifesaving (January 1998)

Arthur joined the Mooloolaba Surf Lifesaving Club in 1926 just before his 15th birthday. In 1928 he won his first Club Champion Lifesaver title, and went on to win that same title every year until 1939 when the competition was discontinued because of World War 2.

For the next 50 years, until he stepped down as President in 1979, Arthur made a significant contribution at club, branch, state, national and international level.
