THE South Grafton Rebels will honour 90-year continuous affiliation in rugby league with a weekend of celebrations and football in early August.
It will begin on the night of Friday, August 5, with pre-dinner drinks in the Sportsman's Bar of the South Grafton Ex-Servicemen's Club.
Saturday evening will feature the 90th anniversary dinner, also at the Servicemen's Club, and will be followed on the Sunday with a recovery breakfast at McKittrick Park, home of the Rebels.
That day will also have plenty of football action with South Grafton hosting arch rivals The Grafton Ghosts in round 18 of the 2005 Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League Competition.
The South Grafton Rugby League Football Club was formed in 1915 making it the longest continuous constituted league club in the Clarence Valley and one of the oldest country league clubs in Australia.
All former and current players, members of committees and sponsors over the years along with club supporters will be welcome to attend all the weekend function.
However, bookings for the dinner function must be made with club secretary Janita Cooper by July 13 as no tickets will be on sale at the door.
Mrs Cooper has mailed out invitations to many former players and officials for whom she has addresses, but is keen to register the addresses of others.
She may be contacted through phone 0432168290, by mail at PO Box 192 or on email firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings or for further information.
