MEMBERS of Eleanor and Gilly’s Monday Afternoon Line Dance Class celebrated their eighth Birthday recently at Maloan’s Bar in Albox. Although this was their eighth birthday, it was the first time it had been celebrated at Maloan’s, and the theme this year was the 1980s.
Class members took part in the festivities dressed up in 1980s gear. There was a parade which was judged by a team comprising Erica Swift, Cheryl Mathews, Chris McPhie, Alice Bradbury, Ann Smith and Jo McCarthy.
Three of the class members were awarded prizes. First was Jan Harris, Angie Mitchell came second and third place was awarded to Margaret Farmery. All the winners received bottles of wine.
In addition all the dances were set to music, such as YMCA by the Village People and 9-5 Morning Train by Sheena Easton.
There was also a raffle, as the group continued its support for FACE (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone), for another year. This group has raised nearly €3,000 for FACE since its inauguration, and the sum of €112 raised at the party helped the group get even closer to that €3,000 total.
The Line Dance group also enjoyed a beautiful buffet prepared by Andrew Slater and Angie Kendall.
Eleanor and Gilly would like to thank all the class members for their support over the last eight years. They would also like to thank everyone involved at Bar Maloan’s for their superb food and service.
