With the hotel not open on Sundays, some Kalamunda residents had been meeting regularly over several months on Sunday mornings behind a local garage for what was called “five-bob-in” get-togethers. As many as 50 persons attended and sometimes that included the hotel manager. From these gatherings came the idea and the Kalamunda Club was formed as the result of a public meeting on 20th August 1952. This was chaired by Len Bennett and attended by 27 residents. Mr G H Johnston was elected President but he resigned with regret at the first committee meeting held five days later when “Boss” Kostera was elected.
100 members were required and there were 129 men and 44 ladies who became foundation members. Of those, Gladys Humfrey still lives in Kalamunda and is still a member interested in activities at the club. The initial membership fees were $2.10 for ladies and $4.20 for the men.
