South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Oko­roire Hall was farewelled in style on Satur­day with a fi­nal ball themed Now and Then.

The hall has hosted many dances over the years, so or­gan­is­ers felt a ball was a fit­ting way to farewell the venue, due to be de­mol­ished in the near fu­ture.

The de­ci­sion to de­mol­ish the hall was made by South Waikato District Coun­cil ear­lier this year fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tion with the Oko­roire com­mu­nity.

About 110 ball go­ers danced the night away to tunes played by Af­fir­ma­tion. Or­gan­is­ers paid trib­ute to the many helpers who made the evening such a huge suc­cess.

Ear­lier in the day a morn­ing tea was held in the hall where Oko­roire res­i­dents shared mem- ories of events at the hall.

The Oko­roire com­mu­nity will use the hall in Ta­papa in fu­ture.
