Ar­mistice Day ball and con­cert

South Burnett Times - - LIFE -

MU­SIC, his­tory and dance lovers will be in their el­e­ment this week­end as the com­mu­nity gath­ers to com­mem­o­rate Ar­mistice Day.

Nanango RSL will be host­ing the 100th an­niver­sary Ar­mistice Day Ball on Satur­day, Novem­ber 10, from 7.30pm to mid­night.

Man­ager Sheena Lind­holm said it was very im­por­tant for the Nanango com­mu­nity to gather for the event.

“We’re look­ing at it as a post-war Hol­ly­wood glam­our for peo­ple to come to­gether and com­mem­o­rate the 100 years since World War I, which is hugely sig­nif­i­cant in our his­tory,” she said.

Seven-piece band Swing Magic will play, there will be games such as monte carlo and raf­fles for me­mo­rial bears.

Peo­ple in tra­di­tional mil­i­tary uni­forms will greet those who at­tend the ball in their semi-for­mal wear.

“It’s about peo­ple com­ing to­gether and shar­ing their sto­ries, and gen­er­ally be­ing thank­ful for the coun­try we live in to­day,” she said.

Tick­ets are still avail­able to be booked for the event. PHOTO: CON­TRIB­UTED Phone the RSL on 4163 1375 for more in­for­ma­tion.
