BLUE LIGHT DISCO A HIT WITH THE KIDS
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.
