Meal

NOT be a meal, but Veggies, Fruits, crackers, buns, cheese, meats, desserts, plus non-advertised hot food.  We went overboard on the food and asked party-goers to take doggie bags home, which they gladly did!  Non-alcoholic fruit punch along with Tim Horton's coffee, Starbucks teas, lemonade, iced tea, and assorted pop.  Fruit punch was Orange juice, Pineapple juice, grenadine, gingerale and fruit slices.

Fun Stuff

Normally, by the time New Years happens, Bertha and I are worn out with all the planning.  Almost every New Years I've had a sleep deprivation headache, this year was different!   With help from dance friends Debbie, Elaine, Vicki, and Bob, Bertha and I were able to leave the hall early and have a little downtime. 

 

This year I didn't issue tickets, but just put people on a list.   This was a non-alcohol event which only caused one person to cancel. 

 

A couple of days buying & preparing the food, half a day to decorate, two full days pouring through my best music proved to be a winning combination! Despite previous years when we totally transformed the room and spent months in preparation, this was our simplest New Years preparation ever which left many saying it was the best New Years event they'd ever been to!  Interestingly no teachers showed up this year so in the end the students just came out and cut loose! 

 

Thank you again for all who came out and helped make this a great night!
