World Pizza Day

World Pizza Day is internationally celebrated on 9th February.

To recognise the international ‘holiday’ and to celebrate their general love of pizza, the Arcare Sydenham community threw a huge pizza making party.

Over 35 clients were keen to be involved and celebrate the trivial holiday, with many joking, saying “I’m just here because I love pizza.”

However only four clients put up their hands, to actually be involved in the cooking process, with the rest, merely enjoying supervising, taste-tasting and smelling the overwhelming aroma that the pizza emitted.

Jessie, May, Pam and Margaret did a wonderful job to satisfy these 35 very hungry clients. While waiting for the pizzas to cook and come out of the oven, the group decided to start a singalong to some of their favourite songs. Of course the most infamous Pizza related song was sung with great enthusiasm, “Some salami and zucchini and a lots of mozzarella…”

It was a beautiful day, and the smiles of the clients faces spoke volumes; it was the simple pleasure of comfort food and great company.
