Rotary Club celebrates History Week

The Rotary Club of Northam is celebrating a successful History Week, with their haunted historical progressive dinner having a sell out attendance. 

The event had a larger than anticipated turn out, with the Rotary Club saying they were thrilled they had generated so much interest.

The dinner has been an annual event for the club, but has previously only been advertised within the club. 

This year the invitation was extended to the general public, with more than 70 people in attendance, and many even missing out on a place.

The progressive dinner will started at Northam’s Old Railway Museum with entrees, talks about the history of railway in Northam and a tour of the museum. 

Attendees then progressed to dinner at Morby Cottage with an insight into the life of the first settler in the area John Morrell, followed by desserts, tea and coffee and Sweet Affair Cafe.

Locals embraced the opportunity to dress up for the occasion.
