THE community is invited to attend the official opening of the Don Hopkins Gateway at the Bushland Drive Racing Complex on Friday July 25.
This will be at 11.30am. The new gateway was finished this year and funded by Racing NSW along with the Taree-Wingham club.
It is in memory of Don Hopkins, who was on the race club board for more than 30 years while he was also a board member with Country Racing and Racing NSW.
Racing NSW chairman John Messara, chief executive Peter V'landys, board members Ken Brown and Kevin Green along with Country Racing CEO Brian Judd and chairman Bob Pavitt will be in attendance.
