Hollywood Comes to Swans

Wednesday, October 7, 2015 - 12:04 PM

The Swans Gala Night was held on the 17th of September at Oakover Grounds in Middle Swan. The night had an Oscars Hollywood theme to it with the red carpet being rolled out for guests from junior clubs, school ambassadors, SDFDC members and central conference staff. The night started out on the lawn with some live music from the band The Silent Deeds before everyone went inside and took to their club tables to hear from our host Clint Wheeldon. The nigh included a welcome from SDFDC Chair Ian Westmore, a district overview from Community Development Manager Isaac Stewart as well as a number of awards and a fun raffle and silent auction. The night was a great success and was the perfect opportunity for volunteers in our district to be recognised. Listed below are all the award winners.
