On July 30, 2018, Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council friends and members past and present came together for a magical night of celebrations.
Marking the 30th Anniversary of the Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council’s Incorporation in 1988, the organisation originated in the late 70’s – a credit to all who have been involved over the years.
The invite promised an evening of dancing, drinking, eating, celebrating and in true RRAC style guests were not disappointed! The Hopetoun Community Centre was styled to rival any royal cocktail lounge while memorable project display’s and photos set the scene for a night of reflection and reminiscence.
Guests were treated to a gourmet canapes and other foodie delights from the harvest table and a selection of drinks from the bar. The award-winning duo from Albany, the “Murder Mouse Blues Band” provided the perfect atmosphere to dance the night away and musicians’ Adam and Blake happily accepted the crowds request for repeated encore’s! Master Harry Bingham added some sprite to the night as ‘support guitar player’.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of life member status to Fay Obrien, Jenny Chambers and Ainsley Foulds. All members were unknowing of the bestowed title and received with honour, joy and speechlessness. The presentation speeches were delivered beautifully (as always) by Chenda Goldfinch (a life member herself) and the evening concluded with the newly appointed life members cutting the decadent celebration cake. Because of course, no anniversary is complete without cake.
The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council is proud of its achievements over the past 30 years, providing the community with many Artistic and Cultural opportunities.
Guests agreed it was a night to remember and a celebration fitting of such a wonderful ongoing achievement within our community.
