Our Annual Blue & Gold goes a little bit country

Last Saturday night members of our wonderful parents and friends community ventured to the Adelaide Showgrounds for the annual Blue & Gold. The Blue & Gold is always a highlight of the Immanuel social calendar. This year it was held in the Old Ram Shed with the theme 'The Blue and Gold Bash' causing a city-wide shortage of checked shirts, as people donned their 'finest' country garb! Whip cracking, bull riding, line dancing were all part of the fun as the wonderful band Acoustic Juice provided the entertainment that got everyone up on their feet. What a wonderful night of fun with friends new and old.
