Dancing at hall despite the rain
LAST Saturday night 75 patrons were blissfully unaware of the storms outside as they enjoyed the sounds of High Noon at the Apple Tree Creek Hall.
The loud thunder was drowned out as the dance floor was teeming with eager dancers.
Couples gathered from around the region to enjoy the grace of ballroom dancing.
The glitz and glamour was smudged as dancers battled the heat and high humidity.
Beads of joy dripped from foreheads and soaked through shirts framed rosy flushed cheeks.
Hall president Chris Cook said she was surprised with the numbers considering the weather.
“The bad weather seems to draw in more couples,” she said.
The patrons were treated to a delicious evening supper of gourmet sandwiches, tea and coffee.
“Next year the hall will host more great events and I hope more people will attend,” Mrs Cook said.
Mrs Cook said there were many people without a dance partner and she encouraged singles to join in.
“It’s a great place to make new friends and perfect if you are new to the region,” she said.
The hall committee thanks the community for all its support during the year and urges the region to attend more of the events in 2016.
