What a Dance! And such a joy for me to see so many members dancing and enjoying each others friendship, under the many coloured lights from the Party Rocker.

Thank you to Jody and her team for the Best Music ever, that kept the floor full of dancers all night long. Your Valentine Picture Wall for photo taking was a big hit too.

Thank you to Remily and Molly for the sweetest treats and snacks, plus the Valentine coloured tablecloths that brightened the atmosphere for a Splendid Valentine’s Night.

Thank you to Celesta for signing in all our guests with her welcoming smile.

Thank you to my family, Randy, Andrew and Aimee for helping to carry supplies and help with set up and take down.

Our set up thank you’s go out to Remily, Molly, Celesta, Jazzy, Jody and Team and all who helped taking everything down so quickly.

Thank you to all our parents and support workers for bringing your families out!
