Gympie Ladies celebrate 90 years

by bqmedia

Friends from surrounding clubs gathered in August to celebrate Gympie’s 90th birthday. Members from the club first took to the greens in August 1932 and the club was accepted into the QLBA in February 1934.

We started the day with great bowls and ended with a beautiful lunch prepared by our volunteers from both Sunshine and Gympie clubs. Betty Lawrence, a member since 1974, dressed in an old club uniform. How things have changed!

The event was proudly sponsored by Bendigo Bank and attending guests included The Honourable Tony Perrett and his wife Michelle, The Mayor Glen Hartwig, Linda Morish from Bowls Queensland and Janelle Westlake, President of the Fraser Coast Ladies District.
