How to celebrate in style

THE Jetty Foreshores were alive with the sounds of samba, Spanish and Portuguese last Sunday as the newly formed Latinos and Friends Mid North Coast gathered for their Christmas celebrations.

More than 60 people of Latino background from between Port Macquarie and Yamba took the chance to relax and celebrate the successful formation of the association this year.

They also talked about plans for next year - including salsa classes and spreading the joy of the bilingual playgroup that is proving so popular in Coffs Harbour.

Member Eddie Orrego said the idea might be taken up by parents in Port Macquarie, for example.

“We also had some visitors from Mexico, as well as some German and Dutch friends,” Eddie said.

Party food included Chilean and Argentinean fare, as well as plenty of 'Aussie snags' and the popular Christmas bread, panetone.
