Fri­day night’s Blue Light disco at Port Dou­glas State School was a huge suc­cess. More than 200 kids turned up to have a dance and so­cialise with their friends in the Port Dou­glas Storm Tide Cy­clone Shel­ter that was trans­formed into a dance hall for one night of fun. The kids en­joyed a night of prizes, games, lucky door prizes, and de­li­cious food and drinks. The Blue Light disco, hosted by lo­cal po­lice, raised $1000 for the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Kinder­garten. The money will go to­wards ed­u­ca­tional re­sources for the kinder­garten, which in­cludes fin­ger paint, and arts and craft prod­ucts. Pic­tured on the left, Re­becca War­land, Michelle Vladich and Beth Hughes re­ceived the cheque on be­half of the kinder­garten from con­sta­ble Mag­gie Mead­ows and Port Dou­glas of­fi­cer in charge sergeant Damian Mead­ows. Lo­cal po­lice have been run­ning the Blue Light disco for 10 years and over that time have given back $4000 to the com­mu­nity. This year was the most suc­cess­ful yet. Po­lice are con­stantly on the look­out for their next ben­e­fi­cia­ries. Four vol­un­teers are needed at the disco and be­tween $200-$1000 can be awarded.
