Tom & Betty Haver...Parents of swimmer Judy Haver

Tom was the  official Riviera Team
Photographer and served for several years as Clerk of the Course. Both Tom and Betty
dedicated time and effort in their support of the Riviera Swimmers. They continue to travel
to various Master's Swim Meets where Tom competes and daughter Judy watches from the
stands...what a change!

Tom is still active in U.S. Masters Swimming and found that his tri-weekly 1500 yd. workouts and 11 competition meets in 2005 moved him to Number 2 ranked in the U.S.A. and Number 5 in FINA World ranking in the 85 to 89 age group!

Big E & Eva,  parents of swimmers Kent Berglund and Carol Berglund

Johnny's Swimmers will always have fond memories of E, as he played a very important role in 'all' our lives. I will always remember him as our "official starter", with one hand pointing a gun towards the ceiling as we anticipated his every movement. E gave so much of himself to all us swimmers.....his time, his enthusiasm, his support and interest in the Riviera Swim Team...not to mention his participation in our many water shows. E was a true friend to my father. I will remember E  with utmost respect and thanks for giving so much of himself to all us kids at Riviera

Eva worked at Riviera in the office until 2006 . She began while Kent and Carol were swimming for Johnny Galvich helping with the swim team and never left. The love and time Eva has put into Riviera Swimming is immeasurable!!!
