Sam Munro is looking forward to this weekend.

She’ll be putting on her best frock for a stellar afternoon at a community disco, put on by Bacchus Marsh-based service provider Merrimu.

The Under the Big Top disco is for adults with disabilities, and Merrimu chief executive Frances O’Reilly says responses to the event over the years has been “fantastic”.

“Everyone has an awesome time,” Ms O’Reilly says. “It’s really fun.

“We all love music, we all love to dance and we all love to let our hair down – it’s the same for everyone.”

Good Guys Melton has donated $500 to Merrimu to cover food, a DJ and decoration costs. Anyone in the community is invited, but they will need to bring a carer along.

The disco will run from 1-4pm on Saturday, April 1, at 2 Bacchus Street, Maddingley. Entry costs $5. Dress code is fancy dress.
