Members Annual Christmas Party
The Gold Coast Jazz & Blues Club held its Annual Member’s Christmas Party on Wednesday, 1 December, 2021. Feedback from our party goers indicated that a good time was had, with the music, dancing and general entertainment going down well.
Big ‘Thank Yous’ to:
- George Ferguson and the wonderful music he provided for our members and their guests to dance and sing along to;
- HOTA management and staff who configured our venue perfectly, and kept us nourished with food & drinks throughout the evening;
- The club’s management committee who worked tirelessly over many weeks planning and effecting all of the behind the scenes arrangements to ensure that our party was a success; and finally
- To our retiring President, John Purnell (JP) who has led the club since being elected as President in July, 2016. Over this period, JP successfully navigated our club through some turbulent times with the morphing of HOTA out of what was originally ‘The Arts Centre’. In more recent times, JP guided our club through the challenges of COVID 19 and its associated constraints, in a manner that kept our club solvent whilst seeking to minimise the detrimental impacts of cancelled shows to our members. In acknowledgment of the tremendous efforts of JP over his term as Club President, a motion will be put at the Club’s next Annual General Meeting to elect JP as a Life Member of our Club.
