2021 Princess Ball Postponed

 

Princess Ball 2021 Postponed.

It is unfortunately not surprising that the Princess Ball scheduled for the 13th November has had to be put off.

Lockdown continues for our area and the NSW Government’s focus is on double vaccinations for the opening of the State.

As we do not know what the Roadmap will allow for events, it is extremely difficult to plan anything at this time, however, the Rotary Club of Milton Ulladulla are hopeful to be able to put on smaller scaled event in December.

It is a possibility we may be able to conduct the interviews outside, or at the very least, by zoom.

Dancing is highly unlikely at this stage and numbers around any events could be very limited.

Double vaccination at this point, is mandatory for attending anything.

We are closely monitoring NSW Health and will do what we can, when we can and how we can.

2021 Blessing Ceremony

A small private Blessing ceremony was held this year on Ulladulla wharf, to bless the fishing trawlers with a bountiful catch and safe return for the year ahead.

Local Italian fisherman Tony Lavalle did an amazing job of coordinating the ceremony. The tradition being close to his heart, it’s continuation very important to him.

Around 100 local Italian fisherman and their families and crew gathered for the age old tradition, the Statute of St Peter residing over the proceedings.

Father Michael performed a moving ceremony, before the Statue of St Peter was carried to the wharf to preside over the official blessing of the boats.

Ulladulla Marine Rescue took Father Michael out on the harbour to get up close to the fishing trawlers, blessing each boat individually.

It was great to see the return of the tradition of the boats cruising out of the harbour, doing a lap, before returning into the harbour to mark the occasion.
