The celebrations and preparations for Arcare North Lakes’ Melbourne Cup started days before the event.
Clients and team members were involved in selecting finishing touches for the display tables on the day.
Many sweeps were done the day before with many of our clients participating in this racing occasion.
Our ladies also lined up to have a little pampering done during the morning of the event.
They had a lot of fun choosing their favourite colour to paint their nails with.
And if they wished, they could choose from a variety of colourful and pretty fascinators to be placed in their hair.
As the afternoon came around, clients filled the chairs in the lounge area, food and drinks were placed on the tables and champagne was popped.
Everyone was ready for the start of the race that stops the nation.
As the horses left and began heading around the track, many comments were heard in the room.
Some clients commented “I’m sure I’ve backed the winner”.
“No, mine will be first,” another said.
And as the prized horses drew closer to the finish line, many clients began to shout “I’ve won, I’ve won. I’m a winner!”
