A real Aussie atmosphereAnnie44Tue, 08/09/2015 - 1:22pm

The meat pies and sausage rolls flew off the table and Maureen Kelly’s electric knife ran hot as she dished out the roast beef sandwiches.  But the big hit of the day was the mushy peas, which the diners attacked with gusto!


Adam Price from Blue Water Cowboys kept the music going and the toes tapping. A few brave dancers took the floor and there was an impromptu “limbo” session thanks to Wilma Greenway and a borrowed broomstick! 

Bob Bush was in fine form and his poems, including a hilarious rendition of “The Cat and the Carpet” and “The Machine”, had the audience in stitches.

Many comments were made about the stage décor, which was designed by Annette Searle with the help of many donations of ‘props’ including a pair of saddles (thanks to Jenny Quinn).  

Joan Williams gave a brief address to welcome the 65 guests and outline the objectives of the YESS initiative.  Joan was delighted with the response and the opportunity to raise community awareness of this project.

The YESS committee would also like to thank everyone who stayed on to help clean up after the lunch.

The first student grants will be handed out at the Christmas Carols in December.
