The greatest Gatsby
Galston Zumba instructor, Nina knows how to throw a celebration party.
Nina wanted to acknowledge her 8 years as an instructor by bringing together her students in a glamorous and celebratory evening of merriment. It is apparent that in Nina’s circle there is an abundance of talent and on the night we had a non stop programme of singers, featured dancers, burlesque and even a pole dancer. Our Galston group worked on a choreographed routine to ‘Ain’t she Sweet’ and despite practising over a number of weeks the 25 strong troupe almost got it right on the night….well actually I should only speak for myself and apologise to the girls for those ‘oops’ steps I added and ‘oops’ steps I forgot.. The weeks of rehearsal and the wardrobe assembly were all a part of the fun and the actual night was dazzlingly spectacular. Nina, you are a super star!
by 10:45am on Sunday 11th November.
Well, ten firies, mostly in uniform, attended, along with five children and three horses. They listened to “The Last Post” from a car radio, whilst two saluted and all stood to attention. The Flag had been at half-mast since 10:30 am and after the 11am “Minutes Silence”, was raised as the “Reveille” was heard.
I do hope many who drove past on Mid Dural Rd at this time noticed our Brigade’s honouring service of Remembrance.
