Strangely, the Fitzgibbon family has had a continuous presence in the club. Apart from Percy (1891-?) and Arthur (1881?) being foundation members, Percy's son Ken (1914-?) attended the DHBC's 75th and 80th anniversary dinners. Let's hope Gary Jenkins, Percy's grandson will attend the 110th anniversary dinner in 2018 too.
