Mary Nichol Receives Lil Babineau Club Builder Award

Mary’s attraction to the sport of gymnastics back in the early 1970’s was as immediate as her desire to promote, develop improve and grow the sport.  For fifty years, the Burlington Gymnastics Club has been the fortunate beneficiary of her volunteerism and passion.

Mary has been integral in the club’s growth, nurturing it from a grass roots operation, training at a local school, to a 2,500 member club operating out of its own facility.

Mary has held the role of coach, judge, Board Member, Executive Director and Board Chair.  In the role of Meet Director, Mary spearheaded the inaugural Spring Club, a meet that recently celebrated its 30th Anniversary.

Now, in the year of the club’s 50th Anniversary, Mary has come full circle, returning as Chairman of the Board of the Burlington Gymnastics Club.

Her dedication and love for the club is greatly admired and appreciated
