The Killarney Vale Bombers Australian Rules Club turns 40 in 2018, and members are organising a big weekend in June to celebrate.
“The Club was started in 1978, with a meeting in the Tumbi Umbi Preschool premises in Adelaide St, Tumbi Umbi,” the Bombers’, Ms June Granland, said. “From there, the Club has grown into a strong and infl uential organisation, with three of their number playing or having played in the AFL. “It has also been home to many young players who have moved into adulthood, with some now guiding their children through the Bombers’ junior ranks,” she continued.
“We have been fortunate too to have a solid administration over the years, which has led to the construction of one of the largest and modern AFL non-licensed clubrooms in the state, at our home ground at Adelaide St, Tumbi Umbi. “The ground too has had its share of attention, with many thousands of dollars spent on drainage, lighting, change rooms, fencing and so on, providing excellent facilities for the local population, and there are more improvements to come,” Ms Granland said. The anniversary event will be held from June 15 to 17, which will incorporate a golf day, a meet and greet function, a home game and a formal dinner at Diggers at the Entrance.
