In addition, Floreat Surf Life Saving Club is celebrating its 70th birthday on the same day as the relay- Sunday 25 February from 12noon to 3pm. The Club was formed in February 1948, with the current Club rooms opened in 1981 after the original building (a little further south of our current location) was damaged by Cyclone Alby. Its current membership base of 500 was a little smaller back then with just 64 members by the end of the first season!
The Baton Relay will be making a special stop at the Floreat Club rooms to help Floreat SLSC celebrate and mark this special day! The Floreat SLSC Board of Directors would like to invite all Cambridge Coastal Care members to join us to celebrate with a FREE sausage sizzle, sandwiches, cakes and drinks in the members bar area.Please join us for this special day on 25 Feb as it should be a lot of fun!
