Thank You for the 2015 Beach Party
Thanks to everyone who came along to enjoy and help at this wonderful Wilston Community event. We had 300 families attend and it was great to see plenty of new faces and all of the kids smiles. The beach theme was certainly embraced with all of the splashing, slurping, surfboard riding, sliding, dunking and rocking going on. The bungee run was a hit with heaps of thrills and spills and let’s not forget the beach BBQ. Wow those sausages were popular. It has been a great start to the year and it’s wonderful to see the Wilston community embrace these events.
Thanks to the School Captains and teachers for being great sports and getting dunked. Especially Mr Hendriks and Miss Grim who seemed to get dunked more than most. Well done and thank you to Felicity Lawrence for making the Dunk Tank program once again one of the highlights of the Beach Party.
It was a fantastic team that organized and ran this event and it has been a pleasure working with you all. We can’t name everyone here, however we would like to especially thank Angela Pratt for running the Tuckshop/BBQ and Andrew Nehill for handling the bar, Matthew Crook for running the dodge ball event and providing all that info on how previous events were run, Michelle Tribe for managing the pool and arranging the blow up toys that had the kids so enthralled.
Thanks to Craig Parravicini for taking on the box building role and managing a fairly controlled affair with only a few destroyed boxes, Kate Cross, Jo Vickers and Alison Hill for convening the very popular Bungee Run, Kids Slide and Mechanical Surfboard.
Isn’t it great to hear a live Band playing great music! Well done and thanks to Stu Garraway and the band for the tunes. Didn’t those preppies like the dancing?
The Face Painting was as popular as ever and kept the artists busy. Thanks to Amanda Boone for arranging. There were plenty of kids glowing in the dark and they were easy to find for Nathan McPherson on security so thanks to Ingrid Rosemann for running the glowies stand.
Thanks to Marteena Pearl for again running the popcorn stand and to Anne Clare for handling the ticket sales with a fairly joyous bunch. Was that a bottle of Champagne we saw with the box of wrist bands? Well done to Rose Bornham for the great looking flyers and marketing material. Thanks to Saskya Hunter for arranging and maintaining the volunteers register on Sign up Genius, Chris Noonan on First Aid and Leigh Hofmeister for the fantastic support with organising from school admin.
Also all those quiet achievers that booked in to help for 1 hour and ended up staying for 3 including those that helped with set up and clean up.
Thanks everyone so much for your support.
