WELL lots has been happening over the past couple of weeks and while I don’t like to mention myself in this column I will this week because I’m overjoyed with the arrival of my daughter Rosie who was born on October 10.
That is why I didn’t have a column last week but I’m back on track with the latest in social happenings.
Liam Stibbard had two reasons to party on October 13 with the celebration of his first birthday as well as his christening.
Guests had a battle getting here as that was the Friday of heavy snow. Everyone managed to arrive safely and the weather was respectable enough to make it a great day.
Grace Monkerud turned 18 last week and to celebrate got together with friends and family at the Robin Hood Hotel last Saturday. Relatives travelled from Sydney including her aunts, Deanna and Melissa Kelly.
Adam Hurford and Rebecca Trudgett tied the knot on October 6. They then enjoyed a honeymoon in Port Macquarie.
While in Port they ran into Sarah Kelly and Sam Stevenson who were holidaying up there for two weeks. The girls had a fantastic time sunbaking, swimming, tenpin bowling and checking out the local night life.
Singin’ in the Rain has been a hit for the Orange Theatre Company and it still has another three shows to go. Amanda Lockwood, Glenys Ramage and Peta Coulston all enjoyed opening night and all the reviews agree that it’s great.
John and Mary Glasson were in town for a brief visit this week before heading back to the Gold Coast. They caught up with their daughter Rebecca at Warren, John’s 101-year-old mother at Molong, their nieces, nephews, grandnieces and nephew in Orange and their son Robert in Sydney. They also attended a wedding in Dubbo.
Justine Hall was in town on the weekend to catch up with friends and family. She also brought along some friends from Sydney to check out Orange in Spring. Justine’s sister Shelley Taylor-Paix was in Sydney at a 40th on the weekend but Justine still got to catch up with her nieces and nephew while she was here.
