Fun and laughter abound

If ever there was an event that captures all the fun and laughter that people hope for as Christmas draws close, it was Council’s Senior Citizens Christmas Concert. 

The event got off to a sweet start for the approximately 500 Senior Citizens from 15 rest homes across the District, welcomed to Forum North’s Exhibition Hall by Councillors and ushers bearing gifts of chocolates. 

MCs Markby and Flash got the crowd laughing and cheering, setting the scene for songs by the opening act, Whangarei Primary School Choir. 

Singing and galloping Councillors displayed talents never anticipated, the Northern Military Men, Maidens and Mischief Makers, singalongs and a stream of other acts ranging from bagpipes to choirs, orchestras to operas, windchimes to magic kept everyone entertained. 

It was all over in a very fast one hour and 15 minutes, but the tales, images and memories should provide laughter for days to come.
