Club member Lyn MacKenzie said it was encouraging to see the group’s membership numbers thriving.
“It is a great thing to see,” she said.
“We were also very pleased to see 12 of the original foundation members attending the meeting, three of these ladies are life members, Ruby Webb, Margaret McDonough and Cath Holden.”
Stawell Athletic Club committee member Murray Macpherson also attended the meeting as the guest speaker.
“He gave us a very interesting history of the Stawell Gift of which he has written a book,” Ms MacKenzie said.
“His additional anecdotal stories of athletes and their strategies was both fascinating and humorous.”
