Wow what a fun night that was! We had a fantastic band of over 15 musicians. We also had wonderful special performances from the Cooma Harmony Chorus, discount Numeralla Fingerplunkers, gerontologist Ned McPhie, Brodie Nossiter and Megan Williams. And thank you, Judith, Anna, Tina, Rowena, Kellie, Viki, Ross, Peter, Maxine, Dave, Rod, Paul and Lou for playing in our bush band. We’re also very grateful to all those helpers who so cheerfully helped with the set up, clean up, ticket selling, supper preparation and washing up! xox

The supper tables were also piled high with loads of wonderful food; so thanks to all those great cooks!

And very special thank you to Rev. Paul for donating the use of the Anglican Hall.
