Ballantrae senior citizens’ Christmas party

On Wednesday 7 December 2011 the Senior Citizens of Ballantrae and District enjoyed a Christmas Dinner and Entertainment in the Community Centre.

The WRVS Chairman welcomed the large company.

The party began with the winner of the lucky seat, Olga Tinsley, receiving a prize donated by Mary Lyle.

The local WRVS members, who organised this event, cooked and served a delicious turkey dinner and mouth watering sweets followed by tea, coffee, mince pies, cake and shortbread. Music for dancing was provided by Robbie and Colin McNally, John Burnett and Alan Paterson. The ladies of Maybole Concert Party then gave an excellent entertainment of song and sketches.

Santa visited and presented each of them with a gift. A large rattle was drawn and all the guests received a gift before going home.

The winners of Pass the Parcel were Bev Shevels and Eileen Dunlop and Alan and Doreen Green won the Spot Dance.

MC for the evenjng was ably carried out by Rosemary Stevenson and votes of thanks were proposed by Jessie Brown.

The singing of Auld Lang Syne brought a very happy evening to a close.
