April Royal Baby Shower
Nelson Bay VIEW Club held a Royal Baby Shower to celebrate the impending arrival of the new royal baby. Over 100 VIEW members and guests welcomed HRH Queen Elizabeth resplendent in a striking gold dress with regal red sash and accompanied by her favourite Corgi. Guest of Honour, Meghan, wore a simple white dress and mingled with local guests and other members of the royal family in attendance including Kate and Pippa; and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice. Camilla wore an elegant red outfit while Fergie could not be missed with her flowing red tresses. Even Theresa May found time to leave her Brexit negotiations to join us. All were bedazzled by the sparkling display of Tiaras and gemstones.
On arrival, guests were treated to a glass of Champagne and Canapes then shown to their allotted tables where they enjoyed an assorted array of tasty sandwiches.
Events Coordinator, Lorraine Nicol, introduced all members of the royal family and invited all to relax and enjoy the entertainment.
Kylie Minogue (Jenni Rossi,) Julie Andrews (Janelle Riorden), Capt. Von Trapp (John Vodopia) plus pianist, David Naylor and vocalist, P.G.Willis gave a fantastic performance of popular lyrics. The classical duet sung by Jenni Rossi and John Vodopia was truly outstanding.
Following the concert a delicious selection of cakes was served with tea and coffee and the raffle was drawn.
Nelson Bay VIEW club thanks everyone who donated their time, their talents or raffle prizes and thereby contributed to the success of the afternoon. The money raised will assist our Club in supporting the 10 children we sponsor through The Smith Family “Learning for Life” program.
