Residents dance the night away

Serene Country Living hosted its first annual disability prom last Saturday much to the joy of the 120 participants who had a ball dancing the night away.

The dance took place at Casadio Park from 6pm until 10:30pm and included a DJ, three-course meal and a reading from local author Sam Bold of his book ‘Picking up the Pieces’.

Wil Stroja and Diane Carter were crowned the Belle and Beau of the ball for being the best dressed in formal attire.

Serene Country Living service manager Oathman ‘Ozi’ Fazilahmed said it was a difficult task picking a Belle and a Beau for the ball as everyone was deserving.

“I could only choose two, but they are all winners in my eyes,” he said.

“I was very impressed with the time and effort put into the outfits; some have been in the works for three months such as the medieval suit the Beau had made for him.

“I was overwhelmed by the support the community showed for the event.

“There was a lot of dancing and I was very surprised the dance floor was full for most of the night which I think was in part due to the DJ being responsive in keeping the crowd engaged.

“The raffle and some other activities did not go ahead due to the time limit, but the items will be donated to a homeless shelter.

“It will definitely be an annual event, thank you to everyone and we will see you next year.”
