The entire community of Arcare Slacks Creek came together to celebrate dear Harold’s 100 th Birthday!
Lifestyle team Tamara and Monica worked effectively and efficiently to decorate the dining room straight after breakfast.
Chef Jane also prepared a special morning tea and cake for the milestone occasion.
‘I wasn’t expecting all this!’ Harold exclaimed when he saw how beautifully decorated the dining room was and how everyone gathered together to celebrate with him.
As Harold cut into his birthday cake, everyone clapped and cheered him on as he was the star of the show.
Harold’s birthday celebration took place before the precautionary lockdown so his brother and sister in-law were able to enter the residence to sing him Happy Birthday and to enjoy a slice of yummy cake.
