The committee originated from the Springtime Committee when three young married women and ex-nurses joined. In 1991, there was a diverse group of 20 tennis players which prompted the committee to chang its name to the Racquet Committee.
The committee holds many events during the year, including annual card days, which attract a full house of 200 people, theatre productions, and Melbourne Cup Day is celebrated in a private home for 80 guests with a home-cooked luncheon .
“This 50th anniversary year our group will be welcoming grandchild number 100! – So we feel grateful these youngsters will look forward to a potentially happy, healthy and successful future with the superb ongoing research by the CMRI team.”
