Debut suc­cess

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

About 280 peo­ple crammed into the Ba­rooga Sports Club au­di­to­rium to watch 11 girls make their debut at the Ba­rooga Lions Club debu­tante ball on April 27.

The debu­tante party danced bril­liantly to a range of dances in­clud­ing the Palma waltz, Tracey Leigh waltz rumba; pro­gres­sive cha cha cha and a Michael Jackson med­ley fea­tur­ing Thriller.

Page boy Kadeyn Dug­gan and flower girl Gemma Edge stole the show and re­ceived much ap­plause.

Debu­tante Ta­mara Brock­ley kicked off the of­fi­cial speeches, sup­ported by part­ner Kristo­pher Bex­tream.

Ta­mara spoke from the heart, high­light­ing the spe­cial bond of friend­ship the debu­tantes formed through the process of train­ing to­gether.

Lions District 201V6 Gov­er­nor Norm Walk­ing­ton praised the deb party and the Ba­rooga Lions Club for hav­ing the best debu­tante ball in District 201V6, which takes in more than 60 clubs.

Tamika Costello and Ri­ley Gow had the hon­our of cut­ting the cake, which was pro­vided by Jess Mili­gan of Au­tumn Lane Cake Co.

Ran­dall Jones was MC for the night, while Scott and Amanda put on a fan­tas­tic show with live mu­sic.

The raf­fle was won by June Gow.

Ge­orgina Post and Peter Fran­cis pur­chased the gifts for the flower girl and page boy, trainer Vicki Ack­ers and Lion Jean Dodd, which Mrs Dodd said the club was very thank­ful for.

‘‘A spe­cial thanks must go to the Ba­rooga Sports Club. The staff were won­der­ful, the food de­li­cious and the timely ser­vice of food out­stand­ing,’’ Mrs Dodd said.

‘‘We also want to say a huge thank you to Jan Ell­ray, who pro­vided the print­ing for ta­bles and the hall.

‘‘Adrian Ben­nett did a great job with the video, as did Rhonda Doyle with the pho­tog­ra­phy once again. Fal­lons Bus Co gen­er­ously pro­vided a large bus free of charge to take the debu­tante party to the venue, which was also very kind.’’

The debu­tante party in­cluded Ge­orgina Post and Peter Fran­cis Jr; Alan­nah Furm­ston and Jesse Mete; El­iza Crosby and Ned Hock­ing; Kayla Laws and Kyle Hore; Tamika Costello and Ri­ley Gow; Paris Rich and Mitchell Hatty; Cas­sidy Nolan and Zavier Wood­head; Claire Bax­ter and Hay­den Brown; Emma Bai­ley and Ja­cob Simp­son; Grace Kelly and Zackary Crestani; and Ta­mara Brock­ley and Kristo­pher Bex­tream.
