KINGS GATE CLUB - THE EARLY YEARS: John Galaba, former resident, also wrote about some of the "firsts" at the Club:
The first Kings Gate Club Pancake Breakfast was held on January 4, 1980, and the first chairman was Gene Buffalino.
The first by-laws for the Club were written by Orvil Walker and George Koukel.
Orvil Walker staked out the gardens around the disposal plant in 1980 and it consisted of 40 plots for residents to grow vegetables.
On January 31, 1980, the first yard sale was held in the Club with Orvil Walker in charge.
In February 1980, a roast buffalo dinner was held in the Club.
Hope you are finding the Club history interesting. Will continue with more next week. - SJB
