Inaugural Hangi and Music Evening was a huge success!

 

The Wandandian Progress Association have been busy raising funds to complete Stage 2 of the Wandean Road Community Pathway.

Stage 1 was completed in February with some welcome support and financial assistance from the Shoalhaven City Council. The Machinery work for the pathway was done by local volunteers .

To raise funds for Stage 2 raffle tickets were sold and a Hangi and Music evening was held in the local hall Saturday 3 June. Being overwhelmed with interest, 140 Hangi tickets and 761 raffle tickets were sold raising just over $6,000.

Wandandian Hangi

A great evening was had by all and although the Hangi meal was a little late coming out of the ground, no one really seemed to care as they rocked away to the fabulous 70’s music of the V.I.C.E Squad from Vincentia. The band started at 6pm and they were still going at 11pm. The Hangi fire and a couple of fire buckets burned and kept some outside while others danced the night away inside the hall. The atmosphere was fabulous as was the food, the music and the company – a great mix for a great evening.

Congratulations to those who won prizes in the raffle and the lucky Door Prize.

Wandandian Progress Association would like to thank those who participated and helped raise this money for Stage 2 of the pathway where work will commence once the ground dries out enough.
