IMSMC Ball 2022

Saturday the 19th of February saw 150+ members, family & friends attended our long awaited Ball at The Conca D'Oro lounge!

 OH WHAT A NIGHT! A huge effort by Elissa Losinno! Her passion, creativity and organisational skills were implemented, creating a memorable & joyful experience!

 As part of our fund raising, Elissa also introduced a "Balloon purchase" with a prize in each, which far exceeded the purchase price - One lucky participant receiving a $1300, 18ct Bangle, others receiving hundreds of dollars in prizes, Kitchen aids, Salami, Prosciutto and various vouchers. A HUGE thankyou to our sponsors! Each family received a "Media Bag" which listed each sponsor in recognition of their contribution to a great night.

 Another fund raising activity was a "Wine Bottle purchase" which contained the signature of Channel 7 celebrities! Thankyou to Tia Stillone for organising this cool prize!

Thank you to the Staff and management of Conca D'Oro, they ensured that our every need was satisfied. The photos speak for themselves - DJ Sal providing modern and classic tracks which kept the dance floor alive!

A great deal of laughter, discussion as many caught up, as we haven't seen each other for a long time. In these challenging (and somewhat confusing) times.  We thank everyone for participating in a GREAT NIGHT.

Membership Breakfast 2022

Sunday 6th of February, our club membership card collection breakfast took place at "Terranova On The Grange" in Raby.

85 members & family attended. Upon arrival, the carpark, once again transformed into an Italian piazza by the valley! Modern and historic classics, creating a wonderful scene. Most members were early ( compliments to you all) arriving well before the start time (must have been hungry!). Right on 9am, the doors opened and what a sight! The venue is fantastic. Our guests were invited to sit at a long table, on an enclosed verandah, overlooking the "Grange".

A very brief welcome and a "Brindisi" with complimentary Prosecco, led to each guest approaching the servery and filling their plates with breakfast goodies, the food was plentiful and in abundance!

A great deal of discussion ( noise!) was evident throughout the morning as many members were catching up for the first time in quite a while (Bloody Covid!).

The year has begun...we hope to maintain our "normal" quantity of events, this year. 2022 looks like being a very good year!

Terranova on The Grange, "We'll be back!"

Happy New Year IMSMC!
