LAST Friday, the El Arish State School 100 Committee, a sub-committee of the El Arish Hall committee, held their first ‘good old fashioned’ fundraiser variety concert in anticipation of El Arish State School’s centenary, which will be held on September 24 – 25, 2022.
The fundraising Variety Concert was attended by over 250 people, who came from near and far to enjoy the line-up of talented singers, dancers, actors, actresses, and poets across the region.
Moris Dal Zilio was the MC for the night and the opening act was El Arish State School’s student choir, a fitting performance for such an occasion.
El Arish State School 100 Committee Secretary, Marie Carman, stated “The Committee hoped to come together with the locals for a night of light-hearted fun and entertainment.”
“It was reminiscent of the old days of the Hall when the spirit of community was high, and we were so pleased with the overwhelming support.”
The night ended with a surprise finale as the audience joined in and sang a rousing rendition of ‘I Still Call Australia Home.’
The Committee have plenty of tricks up their sleeve, so keep an eye out for upcoming events in the lead up to the centenary.
The next event is a Gala Cent Sale which will be held at the El Arish RSL Memorial Hall on August 7.
Doors open at 12.00pm for a 2.00pm start, entry is $5 and there will raffles, lucky door prizes, and afternoon tea.
