On Monday 27th June, 2016, 43 Members and their guests joined the Ladies Committee at their Club Luncheon.
The guest speaker Scott Cumming has been working with the Historic Houses Trust, now Sydney Living Museums, since 2002.
He is the Visitor Services Coordinator at the UNESCO World Heritage listed Hyde Park Barracks Museum and Mint Buildings.
Scott’s fascinating talk focused on the estimated 40,000 women and their children sheltered and processed through the Hyde Park Barracks immigration facility between 1848 and 1886, before finding their place in colonial society.
Chef Rebecca once again excelled with a delicious menu served by our dedicated staff.
These are Club functions not only for our lady members, but all gentlemen are most welcome also.
