A TRA­DI­TION passed down from mem­bers of a for­mer as­so­ci­a­tion has sparked ex­cite­ment in the Wan­garatta Ros­trum Club.

The per­pet­ual tro­phy was in­tro­duced in the Wan­garatta Speak­ing As­so­ci­a­tion about 40 years ago in an ef­fort to in­crease mem­ber­ship be­fore it ul­ti­mately dis­banded in 1981.

It was brought back by for­mer mem­bers Man­fred Re­ich and Carl Clay­den when fel­low mem­ber Tim Costi­gan re­ceived the Most Im­proved Award and sym­bol­i­cally united the two clubs.

Mr Re­ich em­pha­sised the im­por­tance of the com­mu­nity club as it teaches peo­ple from all walks of life about pub­lic speak­ing.

Mem­bers meet at the Wan­garatta Li­brary on the first and fourth Tues­day of each month from 6.30pm.
