Kaponga athletics club 50th Jubilee


On Friday the 18th of March 2016 we were helping with the 50th jubilee for the Kaponga athletics club. Since dad is the president we had to go and dad had do a speech and welcome everyone and myeslf (Jorja) , Madaline my sister also Baleigh Collins our friend and Ellie kovaleski and lastly Bradon Taylor.

We were doing the dishes for the night and there were 58 people that were going. All us five had to wear our Kaponga athletics club uniform and we had to collect all the plates and drinks and set all the tables up. The two lovely people that were making dinner for the night Merry Detning and her husband they cooked everything and I have to say they done a great job.

Firstly they done all the speeches welcoming everybody and apologies for the people that couldn't unforchinatley make it. Then they got straight into tea. I think everybody almost went up for seconds cause the food was great!! then after tea all the helpers collected the plates and then washed and dried them after that they played a slideshow of photos from in the earlier days and how far it has come from many years ago also they had a table set up with all the history and records from years ago. It was a great night!!

Then we went to the pudding and they had a great selection, once they were finished we collected there plates once again and hen we put out all the tea and coffee and just as we were finishing the night we had some athletes that were in the Kaponga athletics club years ago came up and said a few words then we ended the night. I personley thought that the night went very smoothly and everybody had a great time having a talk and catching up with people they haven't seen in a while. Comment below and tell me if you have ever been to a jubilee or have been involved in one I would love to hear from you.

    A jubilee that we just had was the school 150th Jubilee that Auroa School had last weekend. Kaponga School have their 150th jubilee coming up in the near future. This is a comprehensive report about the jubilee and you've added in some fantastic detail - I liked the fact that you took the time to put in the slideshow with your article and that you had the photographs. Is there somewhere that you can link this to like the club newsletter? Or email it to?
