Attention Members and Guests

Humans are, by nature, social creatures. We seek out the comforts of friendship, laughter and social interaction. Bernie Klower is one of the regulars at Bathurst RSL club – she can barely walk in the door without someone calling her over with a cheerful greeting and a sincere “how are ya?”. The staff know her drink of choice before she has to ask (a carafe of wine if it’s a weekend, a classic Tooheys New if it’s a weekday) and come sit with her to share a smoke on their breaks. She hasn’t had to visit a butchers in years, with all the spoils a Sunday night meat raffle offers. Get her talking and she’ll tell you how important her friends are to her, almost like family, and how they all call in and spend time together at the club. To Bernie, the RSL is more than just a Leagues Club, its part of who she is, part of her community and even part of her home.
