The shelter commemorates the golden jubilee of the Rotary Club of Inverell from 1936 to 1986.

A branch of Rotary International has been formed at Inverell, and advice has been received that the newly formed club's Charter has been granted and has already been despatched from America. Charter night will be held early in December, and a large number of visitors from all parts of the State will be present on the occasion. The Rotary Club has been functioning in a quiet manner in Inverell for some weeks, but already the weekly luncheon has come to fill a very important place amongst the social engagements of its members. The following are the local office-bearers: President, Mr. P. J. Nesbitt; vice-president, Mr. A. F. Avern; hon. secretary, Mr. T. G. Hughes; hon. treasurer Dr.L.L. Snow.
