Horsham Sports & Community Club History
A bit about Horsham Sports & Community Club History. The idea of the Horsham Sports and Community Club was born in 1990 when a very small group of community minded businessmen, led by Mr Laurie Rudolph, approached around 40 others in the town.
Many attended the meeting and it was resolved that around 40 people from Horsham and District, would provide an unsecured loan of around $5K each giving a starting capital of around $200K to purchase a restaurant in Horsham. The idea was to have a full entertainment complex that provided live shows, meals and other entertainment options.
The Club has also been very active in recent history. Providing funding to a growing number of Major Community Projects, these include:
May Park Safety Fence, Horsham Cemetery Infant Memorial Garden, Region 17 CFA Forward Command Vehicle, Green Lake BBQ & Pergola, Horsham Aero Medical Transfer Station, Minyip Wetlands Shade Sails, Wimmera River Safety Lighting.
Horsham Sports & Community Club has donated over $315,445 to Major Community Projects. Read more about our individual sponsorships here.
The Club now certainly fulfills its mission statement of “Working for the Community With Pride”
