PREPARATIONS are going well for the reunion of Wingham Apex Club. There has been a great response so far to the call for ex-Apexians to get in touch and rsvp for the reunion dinner on May 17. Final RSVP's are due May 10.
Boasting more than 500 members over more than 40 years, Wingham Apex Club was once active and well known in the community. When things wound down in the 1990s, members went their separate ways and became involved in other charitable organisations.
Three local ex-Apexians have been working together to find their old colleagues for a reunion. Alan Carlyle, Graham Urquhart and Peter Fotheringham have been on a mission to spread the word and find as many old Apex members as possible for the reunion to be held at the Wingham Golf Club.
Members have been located from as far back as 1955. There will be memorabilia on display from original meetings including the first dinner guest list and minutes of the meeting.
While many ex members have been in touch Graham said he thinks there are more out there they haven't been able to reach. "It is a hard job to track everyone down," he said. "If anyone knows of old members tell them to get in touch."
The reunion dinner will be held on May 17 at Wingham Golf Club for all ex-Apex members and their partners or widows.
Contact Graham Urquhart on 0428 535 243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone Peter Fotheringham on 0409 034 557.
RSVP by May 10 for catering purposes please.
