LAST Saturday, local resident, Mick Farnham celebrated his 70th birthday with family and friends at the Hawks Nest Golf Club with Mick’s long time friend, David Cazalet, an Elvis Presley impersonator, entertaining 105 guests who had travelled from Queensland, Coffs Harbour, Pokolbin, Central Coast and Sydney.
David and Mick first met through Super K Mart, Casula in 1987 and together they shared some very special memories with other friends in attendance at the party.
Family and friends were in the spirit of the function dressing to the Elvis Rock n Roll theme which included special guest, Marilyn Monroe, who sang Happy Birthday to Mick.
Great photos were captured by Mick’s nephew, Les Farnham with Mick enjoying two very special moments when Elvis sang Return to Sender to granddaughter, Natasha and In the Ghetto which was dedicated to Mick’s mate, Stephen, who lost his life 49 years ago.
Family and friends danced the night away to old time favourites – Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas, Edge of Reality and many more.
Mick’s birthday cake was created by Heidi Davidson and decorated in the Elvis theme.
A huge thank you must be extended to Sonya and Emma for all their help in bringing the party together and to General Manager, Greg for his professional services offered over the past twelve months during the planning of the party.
“Mick and I would also like to thank George and Jenny The Sun Bistro, Oceanside Motel, Suds Laundry, Benchmark and the Ice Cream Shack,” said Mick’s wife, Lee.
When asked about his special night, Mick said, “Thanks to my wife, Lee and the family and friends for making my 70th a most enjoyable birthday.”
