For Bob’s 99th birthday, the children from the local Munchkins Child Care Centre surprised him with a visit and spoilt him with presents, hugs and a homemade cake.
The group comes each month and they have made some special friendships with the Arcare Helensvale Community; particularly with Bob.
Bob was over the moon and commented, ‘This was by far the best birthday I have had in such a long time!’
A rainy day didn’t dampen the spirits of the Helensvale Community as they headed out for a scenic morning river cruise.
Many were interested in the beautiful homes which overlooked the river and the impressive boats that glided by.
Kevin took over as captain for a while. He said it reminded him of when he used to work on the engine bay of boats used in the navy.
He commented, ‘I haven’t had this much of a good time for a while.’
