No birthday party is complete without a cake and Adrienne did us proud with a giant bridge replica which was ceremonially cut by Her Excellency and quickly enjoyed by those present while listening to a selection of Colonial music from Island musicians Judy, Phil and Dominic.
The Colonial theme continued with our very first “Pop Up” restaurant – a Colonial bistro featuring popular stew and damper. Tea, coffee, biscuits and scones were in steady demand from our team of helpers. Many more helpers worked tirelessly on the day and well before the event to ensure the day’s success.
Feedback has been amazing and most appreciated. The Dangar Island Historical Society believed we showcased our small community in a most favourable light and the enthusiastic response we received to the event was a reminder of why we enjoy living here.
