On Sunday, 22nd April 2018, past and present members and friends of our Club met at Mist@Olinda to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Club being granted its Charter on 25th April 1968.
Speakers on the day included President Paul Cassidy, who welcomed those in attendance, PP Doug Gibson who spoke on “The Evolution of our Rotary Club” and PP Jim Sly who presented “A Snapshot of our Club’s Achievements”. Displays highlighting some of the Club’s history and activities undertaken over the last 50 years brought back memories.
The formalities concluded with the cutting of the birthday cake and the presentation of certificates to our remaining Charter Members, Doug Gibson and Wal Goodwin:
“In recognition and sincere appreciation of 50 Years of dedicated loyalty and service to the Rotary Club of Boronia”.
The event provided a great opportunity to catch up with some of our past members and enjoy a relatively relaxed afternoon. Every one present clearly enjoyed themselves!
