One of the city's most beloved clubs reached a significant milestone this year and to celebrate 50 years of football, the Queanbeyan Kangaroos have called on the community to attend their reunion dinner on the June long weekend.

Set to be held on Saturday, June 11, the celebrations will centre around the Roos proud history and will showcase the current playing group in a string of home games at Freebody Oval against the West Belconnen Warriors.

The under-18 contingent will kick off the playing festivities from noon, followed by the reserve squad at 1.20pm, and the first grade clash from 3pm.

During the day, punters will have the opportunity to pick up their very own 50th anniversary polo shirt, while a specially made reunion jersey will be worn by the first grade squad with the intention of later auctioning off the 17 limited edition jerseys throughout the reunion dinner.

Tickets to the Queanbeyan Kangaroos' 50 year reunion dinner are $70 and is inclusive of a cheese platter on arrival, a buffet dinner, and a three-hour beer, wine, and soft drink package.

For more information, phone the Roos’ Club on 6297 6222.
