Lions’ deb ball enjoyed by all

By Cobram Courier

The Lions Club of Barooga and District Inc. held its second debutante ball on Friday, May 25 at Barooga Sports Club.

The Debutante Party was reduced in numbers due to various reasons but this did not detract in any way from a wonderful ball.

Many tables were taken and an audience of family and friends resulted in over 100 people attending who all enjoyed the dancing skills of this group.

Vicki Ackers, who trained the party, praised the group and said its fun dance performed to Michael Jackson’s Thriller was fantastic.

The auditorium was a picture of loveliness with blue being the theme colour, and the formal proceedings were led by MC Randall Jones.

The Barooga Sports Club served a delicious roast and vegetables, plus a choice of popular sweets.

As always, the staff at Barooga Sports Club attended to every need.

Page boy Cooper Mangion and flower girl Bella Rayne Wisz led the debutante party onto the stage.

The official presentation commenced with a well presented speech by Mariah Yarnold who was assisted by Alex Kingi.

Kaitlin Maloney and Tristian Grinter presented the beautiful debutante party cake made by Jess Milligan from Autumb Lane Cakes, and Jasmine Lee-Abbott and Dillon Bramwell had the honour of cutting the cake.

Barooga Lions president Linda Ryder then addressed the audience after District Zone 6 chairperson Robyn Harrison responded to the debutante party speech.

Helen Lee had an extra reason to leave with a smile after taking home the $100 Barooga Sports Club voucher.

The night finished on a high with a family dance and talented singer and guitar duo Scott and Amanda who had the crowd rocking.

The debutantes and partners were:

Jasmine Lee-Abbott and Dillon Bramwell; Jasmine Houzaife and Travis Curll; Kaitlin Maloney and Tristian Grinter; Mariah Yarnold and Alex Kingi.
