Queanbeyan Eden Monaro Legacy
The Legacy Club of Queanbeyan-Eden-Monaro began as Queanbeyan Legacy in 1933. The Club’s early activities were focused mainly in the Queanbeyan region, but in 1948 were increased to cover all of Monaro electorate. Contacts were established at Cooma and Bombala in 1953, providing the basis for Cooma-Bombala Legacy and in 1972 the name of the Club was changed to Queanbeyan-Monaro Legacy. In 1996 the Far South Coast (FSC) Group joined the Club, and in 1997 the Club title was changed to its present form.
The club now comprises three administratively and financially autonomous Groups, each with its own area of operations and operating under the overall control of the QEM Board of Management

Become part of a proud tradition
Being a Legatee is the most rewarding endeavour of my life. It makes me proud of my country when I see the enthusiasm and compassion volunteers bring to their roles as Legatees. I also see just how much enjoyment and fulfilment they get out of it.
