AFTER facing numerous setbacks in the early years of its establishment, Lautoka's South Seas Club has braved all odds and remains one of the most successful businesses in the Sugar City.

The club yesterday celebrated 50 years of existence and president Duke Khan said they had grown with the support of trustees, members and secretaries.

"This club from inception has stood on the foundation of no bias, whether it be gender, race or religion," he said.

"This is clearly shown on our founders members list as well as the make-up of our members at large.

"We continue to foster goodwill amongst our members as well as respecting traditions and customs of all races and religions."

Mr Khan said the club had income-generating projects such as shop spaces on rent, holding conventions and functions in the convention hall.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki was the chief guest at the event and he congratulated the club on its achievement.

"South Seas Club has not only entertained the people of Lautoka but has also contributed whole heartedly to charities as well as the underprivileged," he said.
