Happy New Year everyone! Our first theme night for 2017 was our annual Aussie Night and BBQ tea to celebrate the occasion of Australia Day (Jan 26th). Great crowd and all enjoyed a dinner of BBQ meats and salads followed by Pavlovas.
Dancing to Australian music and songs and many dancers nicely decked out in green and golds and blue, whites and reds.
Thanks to all who helped set up and pack away not only for the BBQ but also all the decorations. The hall looked wonderful.

The smell of BBQ’d sausages filled the air as we celebrated our National Day with a BBQ tea and dance to follow. Thanks to the Largs Bay Rotary for so efficiently cooking all the sausages, shasliks and onions.
With so many in Aussie colours dancing to Australian music – looked great!

As with many Aussies, we celebrated our National Day with a bar-b-que dinner with the added bonus of good night’s dancing to follow. Thanks to you all for coming and making it a great night. The BBQ cooked beautifully again by the Flagstaff Venturers and the hall looked great. Even had Aussie summer weather – hot outside but cool in so many ways inside!

And so the year is off to a flying start as we celebrate Australia Day on the public holiday Monday. As is our custom, we asked the local youth group, the Flagstaff Venturers, to supply and cook a BBQ tea for us. It helps us and they raise funds for their group as well.
Really nice to a see great crowd complete with Aussie colours of green and gold or flag colours.
The pavs for supper were just the icing on the cake (sorry!) and through the night we danced using some Australian music and songs.
Thanks to all who joined in and to our committee and helpers who helped us transform the hall.
Great to integrate our learners in the night with alternating brackets too – we all had a ball!
