Cudgegong Ball

This year it was to be a Masquerade ball that was held at the Rylstone Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 26.

Gorgeous three course meal was produced by the wonderful team at Country Plate and entertainment by the fabulous Jimmy Craz Band.

This year’s was a licensed event, with ‘masked punch’ at the bar. Many a merry cheer was made upon the night.

Nikki O'Brien says “On behalf of the committee, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and helped make this years ball a success! Because of your support we are one step closer to getting a bus  🚌 for our kids. Stay tuned for a final fundraising tally in the next couple of days”
