Mercury Bay Club’s Crest depicts Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour at anchor in Mercury Bay.
The transit of Mercury was observed from the Purangi River mouth.

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.
