Our History

1938 - 2017

1938
The Exies was founded in 1938 by a driving group of forward thinking RSL members. On the 5th march, 1938 a final inspection resulted in the signing of the lease for the first Club premises at 23 Banna Avenue, Griffith (Where Fred Coles Better Electrical currently stands).
1939
On the 8th October, 1939, the committee decided it was time to make the shift across the road to a bigger premises know as the ‘Solider’s Memorial Hall’. Trading got busy that they had to employee three staff members, purchased their first refrigerator, 2 billiard tables & 2 token fruit machines. They started selling bottled beer & began trading on Sundays.
1947
The RSL club made its final move to what was originally Mirrool House in Jondaryan Avenue (its current location). The premises was purchased for £10,000. The committee officially named the club ‘The Griffith Ex-servicemen’s Club’.
1961
The clubs membership base expanded rapidly over the years, resulting in many renovations. The Griffith Ex-Servicemen’s Club was two story and was home to an array of sporting and leisure facilities for it’s ever growing patronage.
1982
In July of 1982, a vicious fire brought the Griffith Ex-Servicemen’s club to its knees. A substantial amount of official records and artefacts were tragically lost in these fires.
