Over 170 people attended the 41st Merimbula Legacy Debutante Ball on Saturday, July 2 at the Merimbula RSL Club.
They saw 10 local couples presented to guests of honour at the annual event.
Dance teacher Sam McGovern said they had been training for the last 10 weeks and were a great bunch of kids who picked the dancing up very quickly.
In the official party was guest of honour, Allan Browning, president of the Merimbula RSL Sub branch who was accompanied by his wife Marie and chairman of Far South Coast Legacy, Peter Johnston and his wife Elaine.
Matron of honour was Far South Coast Legacy member, Rebecca Lamont.
The MC for the night was Peter White, vice chairman of Far South Coast Legacy accompanied by his wife Felicity and dance instructors and organisers were Ray and Sam McGovern.
As well as the delightful debutantes, there were two beautiful flower girls, Porcha Reko and Anastasia Budd who were accompanied by handsome page boy, Cameron Leonard.
Couples entered the room starting with their first dance, the progressive samba which was followed by them being presented to the guest of honour. Two further dances, the Pride of Erin and Evening Three Step, took place before the evening finished with the debs dancing with their parents.
Ms McGovern said there were many people to thank including DJ Grey, Angi High, James Coleman, Swannies men's wear, Little Bouquet, the Merimbula RSL Club for help and support over 10 weeks of training and Willis Bakery who donated the cake.
“I would like to thank our amazing team for their continuous effort and support every year because without these people it would not be so smooth to organise every year. The night was a huge success with just over 170 people attending and I would like to thank the debs their parents, family and friends for making the night possible,” Ms McGovern said.
