To celebrate another eventful year of Townies UNE, their annual ball was held last month, in the august halls of Booloominbah. The 1920’s theme was carried off beautifully, with all in attendance dressed to the nines. After some mingling and a visit from the Vice Chancellor, guests were treated to an exotic, delicious meal, complete with wine, desert, and 3-piece Jazz band.
Townies President Ruby Mackenzie-Harris and Welfare rep Harley Macnamara both gave inspiring speeches that emphasised the importance of the social dynamic provided by groups like Townies. Townies UNE is a group dedicated to making many aspects as possible of the college experience available to students living in town. The ball was the largest and most extravagant of the many held this year, and celebrated their second year of operating.
After dinner and dancing, the party descended upon the Armidale Club and continued long into the night. Here’s to Ruby, Phil, and the executive for another great year of Townies.
This event was SSAF-funded
