On Saturday 5 November, Cooloola Coast Dances held their monthly Old Time Dance in the 100-year-old Tin Can Bay RSL Hall to help commemorate the Tin Can Bay town’s Centenary celebrations.
Forty patrons attended from all over Queensland. The band The Silver Comets played lively tunes relevant to celebrating social dancing over the past 100 years.
Balloons were loosened from the ceiling beams and enthusiastically trodden on to burst just like patrons did in their younger years on special occasions.
Julie cooked a very tasty old fashioned fruit cake for the eldest patrons to blow out the candles celebrating the special occasion. The large hamper raffle was won by local Marie and was received with excitement.
All attendees were proud to dance celebrating such a special event. A special thank you for Sue, Kaye, and Syd for dressing up in celebratory outfits representing the centenary character and time. You looked stunning.
The next dance is our Christmas Dance on Saturday 3 December. The colour theme is red white and green. There will be a prize for the best dressed female and male. Please bring a plate of goodies to share at supper. It is very appreciated. Tea and coffee is supplied.
Visitors to our area, locals and singles are very welcome. It is a fantastic, enjoyable night with lovely music, good social atmosphere and most of all there is a lot of fun and laughter, and all for just $10 entry to pay for the band.
Come along and start the Festive Season early with us.
