Auchinraith Social Club

An advert for Auchinraith Social Club, from February 1973. Looks like plenty of entertainment on each weekend. Did YOU go to this former social club either at the corner of Glasgow Road or later at Auchinraith Road. Perhaps you worked there or can you remember any of these acts?
