Thank you

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

RE­CENTLY our lo­cal Latin danc­ing club, Latin Mad­ness, hosted the Whit­sun­day Latin Fes­ti­val, with a salsa-in­ten­sive course in Can­non­vale and work­shops and par­ties on Day­dream Is­land.

Guests trav­elled from as far as Perth, Syd­ney, Bris­bane, Mel­bourne and Cairns as well as lo­cally from Mackay and the Whit­sun­days.

Our feed­back in­di­cates it was very suc­cess­ful, with ev­ery­one en­joy­ing the friendly, in­clu­sive na­ture of the event and the beau­ti­ful Whit­sun­day set­ting.

I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the many lo­cal busi­nesses who made it pos­si­ble: first the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil for the RADF grant, Ker­rin An­drews and Ky­lah McCarthy from the Fit­ness Venue, Greg Ham­mond from Date­line Com­put­ers, Opal Har­ri­son for Zumba and dec­o­ra­tions, An­gela Kay for pho­tos, John and Tim from the PCYC, Steve McDon­ald from Beach Mu­sic, Donna and the staff of Day­dream Is­land who made us very wel­come, and fi­nally, Char­lotte from the Whit­sun­day Times.

Or­gan­is­ing an event of this na­ture in a re­gional area takes an enor­mous amount of work, and our hard­work­ing pres­i­dent, Jane Streeter, de­serves a huge vote of thanks.

We wel­come new­com­ers to our weekly classes and so­cial nights and are al­ready plan­ning the next fun event.

Joanne Vla­sic, Sec­re­tary Latin Mad­ness
