2017 Christmas Party

 

Tuesday 12th December 2017 saw the ending of another eventful bowling year, for the Ettalong Ladies Bowling Club. The tables were set with Christmas placemats, decorations, and baskets of chocolate, and lollies. Under the Christmas tree, were the three raffle prizes and a very large Santa sack, filled to the brim with lucky door prizes. This year our official guests were, Club President Robert Henderson,who spoke briefly, wishing all in attendance a very Merry Christmas, and a happy New year, CEO Tim, Denise and Marie. Harry and his helpers provided us with a very nice baked dinner, and pavlova cream and ice cream, for lunch. It was then that the partying began in earnest, with the ladies taking to the dance floor. This year Santa was in attendance to hand out the lucky door prizes with his helper a very well dressed lady elf. After a wardrobe malfunction, (Santa forgot her belt) some Christmas tinsel came to the rescue, and I am pleased to say Santa saved her modesty with a strategically placed Chrismas brooch. The winners of this year’s raffles, 3 baskets of Christmas goodies and a $50.00 dollar voucher were, Di Dillon, Val Brownlie, and Tracy Osborne. More dancing ensued, and before we knew it, we were singing “Auld Land Syne”, sung by our own Gayle Wise. Everyone joined in, our older generation enjoying every moment. Once again it was great to see such a large age range, coming together, and enjoying the spirit of Christmas.

Thank you to Ann Middleton, who made the Christmas cake and Edna Fowler, who iced the cake, and "thank you", to all who set up for the day, and cleaned up afterwards. Without you, these days would not happen.

President Elaine, and her Executive Committee, would like to wish you all, a very Merry Christmas and a happy, and healthy New Year. See you all when bowls resume on the 9th January
