BELLE OF THE BALL
The Apple Tree Creek Memorial Hall president raising funds for repairs
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.”
