THE Wolvi and District War Memorial Hall got off to a good start for 2012.

Hall committee spokeswoman Dot Hewat said there were about 60 adults and children at the first social night for the year, "all having a great time".

"The musical entertainment was provided by well-known Australian blues harmonica player Geoff Donaldson, on guitars were Daniel Day, Kieren and Bryce Googe - all are Wolvi locals," she said.

"Thanks guys, you all did a great job.

"It is great to see the local children wanting to get up on stage and entertain the crowd. The boys played some of their own material as well as other artists' songs."

Mrs Hewat said new young talent was always being sourced to play at the hall.

"To any musical talents out there, whether they be children, teens or adults looking for a venue to play, please contact one of the committee, we are only too happy to oblige, after all, this is what community halls are about - getting the community together to have fun."

Besides the music, a number of darts players had a game on the night.

Mrs Hewat said the Wolvi Hall committee was looking for players (children must be 12).

If there was enough interest, a "Wolvi Hall Darts Club" might be formed.

Also during the social event, the membership draw jackpot for $60 was won, meaning next month the draw will be back to $10.

Membership is $5 a year.

"Soni Donaldson (thanks Soni) delighted the young children with her face painting," she said.

"There were butterflies, tigers, masks, flowers running around the hall, in the playground, table tennis, pool and toddlers playing in the kiddies' area of the hall.

"The West family from Blackwater, Queensland, joined in the festivities, chatted with the locals and participated in the various games. We hope to see them back at the hall in the future.

"From the youngest to the eldest, all had a great evening."

The next social night will be held on Friday, February 3, from 6.30pm-11.30pm.

Mrs Hewat invited everyone to "come along and join in the fun".

There will be hot food available, soft drinks and snacks, a licensed bar, but no BYO.
