It’s hard to believe that January is already over for 2020 but our residents have certainly been busy.
Marist partook in the Aussie tradition of a barbeque with grilled pork and beef sausages, lamb cutlets, rissoles and grilled Yellowfin tuna with garlic and rosemary served with potatoes and spring onion and garden salads. Dessert included caramel ice cream and a lamington birthday cake washed down with wine and beer.
Our hearts go out to those affected by the bushfires and Ocean Star got into the spirit of Australia Day with their Australiana decorations while also raising money for the injured animals in the bushfires.
Trinity Village held a very successful morning tea on 14th January to raise money to go towards the bushfire relief with a raffle and donations. They raised an impressive $1175 with all money donated to the Red Cross. A HUGE thank you for the generous hearts of our staff and residents.
Castledare celebrated Chinese New Year with the Chung Wah Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe who performed the popular Lion Dance.
Castledare residents got busy crocheting birds’ nests, which were sent to The Rescue Collective, the Animal Rescue Collective and Animal Rescue Craft Guild. The rescue groups are helping the fire zones across five states and supply craft items that can be used for animal rescues. A big thank you to resident Penny Parsons (pictured) who helped make the birds’ nests.
