Past and present members of the Berowra Apex Club, including several of the original founding members, recently gathered to celebrate the club’s 40th anniversary. Members and their partners enjoyed a party at Berowra RSL, with newer members learning a bit about the club’s traditions and history, while previous members caught up on recent activities. The club’s first president Graham Hulbert, and current president Matt Francis, were both present and spoke passionately about the club’s past, present and future.
The first Berowra Apex meeting was held in 1976, and in December 1977 it became a fully fledged club. Since then, Apex has had a proud history serving the Berowra community. In the early days service activities such as cleaning up the seven barbecue areas on Berowra Waters Road leading down to the ferry and doing repairs and mowing for elderly residents were common. Fund raising events such as Azalea plant sales and cash-a-can helped generate funds for various community initiatives. These days it’s the Woodchop, Movie Under the Stars, Santa Sleigh, Christmas tree sales, and much more.
Berowra Apex is proud of what has been accomplished in the last 40 years, and looks forward to continuing the legacy into the future. Anyone who is interested in giving something back to the community is encouraged to consider joining – visit berowraapex.org.au for more information.
