Description:

Wangi RSL started its life in George Plain’s shed on Watkins Road. There was no license available at this time and in order to obtain one they had to operate from a proper building. The Ladies Auxiliary held stalls, balls and raffles to help finance the construction of a building. In late 1952 the construction of the building was commenced, mainly by voluntary labor. 1952 through till 1954 Wangi RSL held a provisional license, which meant they could only purchase beer from Tim Rees’ Great Northern Hotel, Teralba. This continued until the granting of a full license on the 3 November 1955. In 1960 the current Club premises in Watkins Road was constructed by Arcos Constructions, and it was opened in time for Christmas that year. There were always large crowds on New Years Eve, and this tradition has continued throughout the years to this day.
