Eighteen months of planning has resulted in one of the most successful club functions in years.
Wodonga's 150-year anniversary on Saturday night at the city's golf club attracted a bumper crowd of around 200.
"It was even better than we thought," delighted president Leo McGhee said.
"About a year and a half ago we set up a sub-committee to plan the event and they out-did themselves, they did an excellent job."
