Former pupils of Oban High School, of any year group, are invited to a supper dance in the Royal Hotel on Saturday March 9.
Two years ago, the Former Pupils’ Association in Glasgow decided it could no longer sustain annual meetings in Glasgow and, after trying a dinner dance themselves in Oban, passed the reins to a local group who will hold annual events in the town.
The dance was well supported last year but, in an effort to get more former pupils (FP) interested, the event has been changed into a hot supper dance rather than a formal dinner dance.
This is being supported by the Royal Hotel, which will provide a buffet menu including soup, chicken and ham pie, beef bourguignon, haddock with cheese sauce, mushroom stroganoff, and apple and cinnamon crumble, all at an excellent price. The hotel is also doing a deal on bed and breakfast for people attending the event from further afield.
The price of a ticket for the buffet and dance, with music by the Martainn Skene Duo, is £20. Tickets are selling well but it is important that as many people as possible buy tickets early so numbers are finalised. Tickets will not be available at the door.
This is a great opportunity to meet with friends, old and current, and it would be great if FPs gathered some friends and come together to enhance the craic.
More information and tickets are available from David Brown 01631 565242, Lachie Beaton 01631 565890 and Rosemary Omand 07876 585416, and on Facebook.
