Christmas Supper Dance Held at the Commodore Hotel on 7 December 2018



66 members and guests (including visitors from Australia) braved some pretty atrocious weather to attend the annual Christmas supper dance at the Commodore and were royally entertained by the inimitable Charlie Kirkpatrick and his band, with Charlie's patter as amusing (if weel kent) as ever.


President Neil MacLeod provided a welcome and dancing continued until an excellent supper was served by the Commodore staff. The traditional appearance of Santa and his vivacious elf assistant (ably played as usual by Ewan and Janette Howieson) was the highlight of the evening and was loudly welcomed by the party.


The raffle raised a total of £182 and thanks go to those who contributed to the prizes and, of course, all who bought tickets.


The second half provided more great music to dance to and included a spot dance. The President wound up the proceedings followed by the last waltz and the traditional Auld Lang Syne before the weary dancers departed, thankfully in somewhat less wet and windy conditions than on arrival.


Our next function will be the Hogmanay Dance at Geilston Hall, Cardross
