Our History

CLUB POEM BY BARBARA REID
Way back in ’72
the R.S.A. felt need to review
a new location and their revenue

Meetings were held
the committee elected
plans agreed and projected

’74 was club incorporation
650 was the new population

Doors were opened in ’76
Friendship and Fellowship being the fix

To date we have more than doubled our size
Mercury Bay’s most valued prize

Come and join us, you will see
Friendship and Fellowship being our key.
