The Pyalong Recreation Hall was full of Christmas cheer on December 1 when the Pyalong Neighbourhood House hosted the community’s annual Christmas Party.
Mitchell Shire councillor Rhonda Sanderson attended the event, presenting raffle winners with their prizes and catching up with some old school friends through the course of the evening.
Christine Johnson was congratulated by all for her efforts in decorating the hall for the event, while face painter Lynne Mosbey and assistant Kiera kept children entertained while they waited for Santa.
Also present was new Pyalong Neighbourhood House co-ordinator Belinda Osmond, who said she had been made to feel welcome by everyone.
Santa arrived on cue, handing out presents to all the children before dashing off again in the warm weather to complete his rounds before his reindeers got too tired.
While children snacked on marshmallow snowmen, adults enjoyed a buffet selection and danced along to music by the band Mantel.
