Photo Memories from Carmel Gregg...
These pictures were taken in 1971 during the three nights of celebration when the Club paid off its mortgage, originally organised by Jack Warner in 1950, to own the premises outright. It was an amazing occasion and important in the CAA’s history. Many celebrities responded to our invitation. Not all were photographed. Carmel Gregg was club secretary at that time and recently visited the club. We thank her for sending in these lovely memories.
