Some notables were there.
Amongst the crowd were Jean and Harry Laurie who recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in Queenstown.
Two of the organisers. Unfortunately, I didn't catch their names.
A few people brought photo and scrapbook albums. One scrapbook album detailed the history of the Eason family during WWII. The Otautau Museum also provided a selection of old photographs to reminisce on.
Jean Laurie, Thelma McWhirter and Jean Watt. Thick as thieves.
Live entertainment included Lindsay Abbott, Judy Knoops and her son Kip (on guitar), and Colin Miller on keyboards. Colin also did a bit of yodelling for us. Bev Townley also sang but is not pictured.
When Colin played a waltz, the dance floor was quickly taken up by two very graceful dancers. Beautiful to watch.
All in all, it was a wonderful afternoon. Makes me wish that these folks still lived in Otautau. What stories they have to tell.
