His­toric club drives on

The Riverine Herald - - ECHUCA MOAMA AUTO -

ECHUCA and District His­toric Ve­hi­cle Club held its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

The main busi­ness was the elec­tion of the new com­mit­tee.

Some 90 mem­bers at­tended, which is on par for the club’s usual monthly meet­ings.

The club boasts more than 230 mem­bers and has its head­quar­ters at Ro­tary Park in Echuca.

At the re­cent AGM, club pres­i­dent Barry Hig­gins noted the first meet­ing of the club was held in a lounge room in 1982.

The large mem­ber­ship base is due in part to the fact the club is a so­cial club, host­ing more than 90 ac­tiv­i­ties last year.

Mr Hig­gins also com­mended the club on its char­i­ta­ble na­ture.

The club’s an­nual swap meet donates $500 from any profit to a lo­cal char­ity and this year the Food Bank was se­lected.
