It was resolved that meetings be held at the Hutt Golf Club (now known as Boulcott's Farm

Heritage Golf Club) on the third Monday of each month from 10 am to 12 noon.

The first Guest Speaker was the then current Mayor of Lower Hutt, Mr John Terris, and over the

years the Club have had Guest Speakers who have spoken about their particular vocation or interest

which members have enjoyed hearing.    

The Club celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Club at the Petone Workingmen’s Club in 2007 and

the 20th Anniversary in June 2017 at the James Cook Hotel, Wellington.

Life Membership was conferred on Colin Strachan in March 2007, Jaye Howey in August 2009 and Liz

Palmer & Bill Soeberg at our 20th Anniversary celebrations in June 2017.
