Wangi Wangi RSL Club………. Over 50 Years!
Wangi RSL started its life in George Plain’s shed on Watkins Road. There was no license available at this time and in order to obtain one they had to operate from a proper building. The Ladies Auxiliary held stalls, balls and raffles to help finance the construction of a building. In late 1952 the construction of the building was commenced, mainly by voluntary labor.
1952 through till 1954 Wangi RSL held a provisional license, which meant they could only purchase beer from Tim Rees’ Great Northern Hotel, Teralba. This continued until the granting of a full license on the 3 November 1955.
In 1960 the current Club premises in Watkins Road was constructed by Arcos Constructions, and it was opened in time for Christmas that year.
There were always large crowds on New Years Eve, and this tradition has continued throughout the years to this day, with fantastic FIREWORKS.
Anzac Day was another very big event with a march starting at the School. No women were allowed in the Club on Anzac Day, (how times have changed). Two Up was also a very big event, especially as Rathmines Air Base was still in service in the early days.
Currently Anzac Day is still a very big event, being one of our biggest days of the year, with over 3000 people visiting the Club, and a fantastic array of old army vehicles included in the march.
