60th Birthday Club Celebrations

 

On Tuesday 8th November 2016, our club celebrated 60 years since its formation.
 
The club was first known as Toukley Womens Bowling Club and since 2010, when the club name was changed, we are known as Canton Beach Womens Bowling Club.
 
After morning tea a "Spider" was held and this was followed by everyone assembling for a commemorative group photo - our thanks to Kitty Bradley Photography for this.
 
Our celebrations included a game of bowls with invited guests from Central Coast District and representatives from local Womens Bowling Clubs.  A continuous slide show was a feature, with many photos taken of our members, both current and from years gone by - Presidents, Club Singles Champions, Pennant Flag Winners, Australia Day photos and even some Christmas Party photos.
 
District President Dianne Elsom and our Club President Chris Gooch together cut the celebratory cake, which had been beauitifully made and decorated by Viv Darcy.   Each person present received a gift of chocolates, together with a leaflet, outlining "A Brief History" - the story of our bowling club.
 
This was a very important day in our history and one that will be long remembered.
