|Launceston Legacy Inc. was founded as a Remembrance Club in 1927. Mr. G Youl was elected as the first President and Mr. W.O. Layh was elected Secretary/Treasurer. Due to work commitments Mr. Layh was replaced by Mr. W.J. Manthei. The first Annual Meeting was held on Saturday, October 28, 1928.|
|At a Special General Meeting held on August 4, 1933 it was resolved that the name of the Club be changed to Launceston Legacy Club.|
|Launceston Legacy Inc. has 68 active Legatees and 8 supernumeraries. We look after 1888 widows and 5 children.|
|Members meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 12.30 p.m. at Legacy House, 59 York Street, Launceston. |
Launceston Legacy Inc. covers the northern half of Tasmania – north of Oatlands. We have groups in Devonport, Central Coast, Burnie/Wynyard and Circular Head. Country Legatees cover the other areas.
|We have twelve Widows’ Clubs throughout the north of the State. These assist widows/ers with socialisation and combat the loneliness that many of them feel after the loss of their partners.|
|We are always keen to have new members as volunteers to assist with our sacred task of looking after the families of our incapacitated and deceased Veterans.|
|Legacy Badge Days are a busy time for our club and any assistance from the local community would be greatly appreciated.|
