NEWTOWNSANDES Creamery Social in the Arms Hotel on Friday Nov. 20th 2010 attracted a crowd of 320, it was just like the many Creamery Socials held in the past, an occasion for young and old, with a fine meal and entertainment to cater for a multitude of tastes. Reflecting on past socials we remember the great energetic dancers who have passed on and the former patrons who were not able to join us. Very few at the Social remember The White Horse Inn, Sandy Bird and Joseph Locke who oversaw the socials at the present Arms Hotel over 40 years ago. More Creamery Socials were held at the Motel in Tarbert and later at Banna Beach Hotel and in more recent times at the Devon Hotel. Great thanks are due to all the organisers, helpers, entertainers and the Callaghan Family and staff at the Hotel.
