Parkes Bowling and Sports Club officially celebrates centenary with dinner

Parkes Bowling and Sports Club was able to finally host its centenary celebration dinner at its premises on Saturday, April 17, even though 2021 marked 101 years.

Covid-19 put a halt on celebrations earlier in 2020 but club members were still able to mark the anniversary in its centenary year with a special weekend of bowls later on in November.

The club held off its dinner event for another time.

And that time was last weekend.

Club members were thrilled so many people attended the evening, held at the club's premises in Cecile Street.

The night featured speeches, photo and memorabilia displays, a special gift of a centenary glass for guests and five life membership presentations.

Parkes Mayor Ken Keith OAM helped to present 2021 life membership awards and pins to Audrey Jones from Trundle, Graham Barby who's been a member of the club for 33 years, Lizz Byrne, Mareen Stone and Bob Risborough.
