Club Sesquicentenary Update

Club Sesquicentenary

In October 2017 the Club will have been in existence for 150 years.  This will be a most important milestone in our history.  Few organisations endure for such a period and we will celebrate in a fitting manner.  At this time Sesquicentenary events in Australia are few in number.  One hundred and fifty years ago we were in the time of the Burke and Wills Expedition and NSW was a colony.
