A Big Thank You From The Hall Comittee

The Puhoi Hall Committee would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported the Annual Fundraising Dance,” says committee member Kathy Mankelow.  “The Band – The Damage provided awesome entertainment with many spellbound by the gorgeous lead singer. Special thanks to Bev and Amego for your amazing support and promotion of this event.  We raised a fabulous $1700 which will go towards the new Hall roof.  Our theme, Bohemians, Gypsies, Hobos and Clowns, was well received and more extra special thanks sent to our very own local gymnast Jasmine Papprill who surprised the crowd with her awesome aerial acrobatic performance during the supper break.  Yes, our very own little ‘Cirque de Soleil’ Puhoi Style – you should have been there. Lovely Jasmine also turned Gypsy card reader to raise a few extra gold coins for the cause. A fun night was had by all, ending with a spectacular thunder and lightening storm. See you all at the next dance”. (thanks for that report, Kathy, ed)
