Project Description

In December, Singles and Mingles had a Christmas dinner and disco to celebrate the end of the year. We had it at Chapelli’s in Lower Hutt. The food there was yummy. We also had a lovely DJ who played lovely songs. There were prizes for the best dressed male and female and best dancer male and female. I had a bourbon and cola. I made up a Christmas frame for the end of year singles and mingles and also decorated the venue.

It was a great night! Awesome music and DJ.

People from Idea Services joined in the fun. Jenna gave out prizes to certain people including Shannan who won ‘best dressed (Christmas themed) female!’ Emma won best dancer.

Santa was a huge hit! He went around offering everyone a treat from his Christmas stocking which was filled with Mackintosh’s lollies.

Francie got on the microphone to acknowledge and thank all the Chapelli’s staff for their great service. It was a well-deserved thank you!
