We wanted to say a memorable ‘goodbye’ to the many Orange friends and colleagues we’ve made over the years.
Kate and Derek kindly provided the venue, Pat and Kellie the music and Gordon the CDs from his vast collection.
Getting rid of just about everything has meant sacrifices and so Gordon came up with the brilliant idea of ‘gifting’ a couple of albums to each of our 50+ guests.
The ‘farewell ceremony’ provided us with an opportunity to link all the threads together of a vast array of people who have played a significant role in our lives here in Orange. Some we met on day one and some more recently… but all have had some kind of an impact and so, through the names of albums and tracks we told their stories. It was a great way to tip the focus away from us and back onto all of them.
Thanks everyone who made that Sunny afternoon so special and memorable.
