Theme and Purpose
Commemorative. Kingston & District Senior Citizens’ Club. Membership. Could have been created when the Club built their own premises, possibly in the 1970s. The Red Cross initiated seniors’ dinner events. This started the social interaction amongst senior citizens in Kingston. They initially used a caravan clubhouse until the Council approved a purpose-built club building. The cloth is in current and constant use as a tablecloth in the clubrooms.
