THE Lions Club ball was held on Satur­day, Au­gust 8.

The evening had a great turnout as peo­ple from around the area at­tended.

The ball was held at the Ap­ple Tree Creek Me­mo­rial Hall.

Hall pres­i­dent Chris Cook said dur­ing the year the Lions club kindly do­nated funds to re­pair the hall.

“We thought it would be great venue for the Lions Club ball,” Mrs Cook said.

The night was high­lighted by the pre­sen­ta­tion of the belle of the ball win­ner, Loma Ea­gle­sham.

The ma­tron was awarded to Jan An­der­seen, princess award to Zep­pe­lyn Weg­ner and the best dressed cou­ple go­ing to David and Jac­quie MacDow­ell.

“All the pro­ceeds raised will go to the restora­tion and up­keep of this won­der­ful hall,” Mrs Cook said.

“From the out­side the hall looks tiny, it’s sur­pris­ing how big it ac­tu­ally is.”

The hall has a large dance­floor with pol­ished floor­boards, a raised stage with plenty of room for a band of mu­si­cians or DJ.

It also has a kitchen, a bar area and great sized ladies and gents bath­rooms.

The hall has a new deck area to the side of the build­ing with child-safe gates and ramp ac­cess, and there is plenty of car park­ing space.

“The hall is avail­able for so­cials, birthdays, school for­mals, wed­dings and a great place for host­ing meet­ings,” Mrs Cook said.

Mrs Cook said: “We en­cour­age lo­cals to hire the hall for all func­tions and we need com­mu­nity sup­port to con­tinue with all the re­pairs.”

“I’m not one for ask­ing, but on this oc­ca­sion the Ap­ple Tree Creek Me­mo­rial Hall needs help. We ask the com­mu­nity to help us re­store this old beauty.”
