Events Secretary Report
Let me introduce myself. My name is Rebecca Hook and I am 43 year old Registered Nurse specialised in aged care. Currently work for a nursing agency going to nursing homes in Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains. With the club move to Mt Druitt and COVID happening, it has been difficult to organise any events such as our festival. The easing of some restrictions and us to settle into our new home, we are starting to organise “Theme" nights. This October, we have two the first one is “Octoberfest" on Friday the 23rd with food and music of an Octoberfest inspiration.
Our second theme night is “Halloween” on Friday the 30th of October. Everyone is welcome to dress to the theme if you wish. It would be lovely to see some ghosts, witches, and goblins for Halloween!
Current COVID restrictions that are imposed on us by Blacktown City Council and the state and federal governments, we have to record our members and guests in the sign in register. Numbers inside the hall are monitored and all are advised to social distance where possible.
Also, rules on what you can and cannot do are changing all the time. We are trying to keep abreast of all of the changes as they happen and if they apply to us. Singing and dancing may be a possibility as some restrictions are easing. A solo singer is allowed with distancing rules in place. We possibly have an amplifier with microphone setup that may be able to be plugged into the existing speaker system that is at Mt Druitt Hall, so if you want to provide some singing entertainment on a Friday, please contact one of the board members. Dancing is currently not allowed under COVID restrictions, but we are hopeful that it may change in a few weeks.
Booking in advance for theme nights would be appreciated if at all possible. This will allow the kitchen to prepare enough food for the numbers expected and will allow us to keep to COVID restrictions on numbers. Those who have booked in advance will be given priority especially on busy nights.
Sinterklaas is coming to town again if you have a special someone that would like to meet the good man could you fill the form and return it to Erika or Rebecca at the club.
