Retirees celebrate Australia Day
LAMINGTONS, pavlova and sangers were just a few items on the menu for Australia Day celebrations at the Boambee Gardens Retirement Village.
More than 100 residents gathered for our nation’s favourite day, with a ‘best dressed’ competition, Australian trivia and lucky draw raffles keeping everyone entertained well into the afternoon.
Village resident Patricia Foster had a ball and was revelling in the festive atmosphere.
“Everyone got together and had a great time, and the food was perfect,” Mrs Foster said.
“It was a fabulous environment to celebrate Australia Day in.”
Resident manager Pauline Pollock organised the event and was thrilled with the turn out.
“This is our first year and we have had a really great response,” Ms Pollock said.
In true Aussie spirit, all proceeds from the lucky draw raffles will benefit the Flood Relief Appeal.
