Tonight (29th January 2015) we had the lovely Tongans (a group of tech school boys from the Tupou High School) sing for possibly the last time at the Yarram Club Hotel.
A gorgeous bunch of boys who’ve been staying with us for the last two months, they came to the area to pick tomatoes, make some money and learn something new outside of Tonga. Since their arrival they have been adopted by local community church groups and people throughout Yarram; helping to make them feel welcome in a town that was initially very foreign.
These boys sing like angels – a Capella style – with their harmonies spine-chillingly beautiful. They did two sets this evening, to a completely packed out crowd of eager supporters and well-wishers. One set was in the Glasshouse Bistro and the other in the function room, so that all who were there, could appreciate and hear their magical tunes and melodies.
Thank you Yarram, for helping to support this initiative with open hearts – together we raised in excess of $1500 for the Tongans and their community. Certainly for us, our lives feel more enriched as a result of their stay here.
