Note:

I have not been able to track down any information about the actual projects carried out in Riverview Park, South Lismore by our Club. The 1971 - 72 Annual Report states "the Riverview Park Project passed onto the next Board". The 1972 - 73 Annual Report states "the Riverview Park Project did not proceed". There is NO reference to Riverview Park in any Annual Report after this. However, some of the older Club members, whilst they couldn't remember the actual years, advise that the Club did installed picnic tables & seats and playground equipment at Riverview Park, South Lismore.
