What a wonderful day we had at Arcare North Shore with the Annual Easter Party! We danced through the night with a brand-new entertainer, Rocking Ray.
He had a wonderful voice and he was full of energy as he invited clients and team members to sing and bop along to his songs.
“Boy this man can sing,” Mavis said as she complimented our new performer Rocking Ray.
The Easter Bunny also made a special visit and everyone had the opportunity to take photos with him.
The photo wall was very beautiful with fairy floss-coloured balloons like blue, pink, purple and white forming an arch.
We feasted on frosted icing cupcakes and pink lemonade which our chef masterfully created.
We also watched some of our friends get up and dance the night away.
We are never too old to get a visit from the Easter Bunny and we are never too old to share a dance with him.
Celebrating Easter with friends and family brought back a lot of memories for the clients.
They remember running around the garden looking for little chocolate eggs, trying to get the most eggs to win the Easter egg hunt.
And sometimes, after a day filled with chocolates and sweets, they would also bring their children out for a special ice-cream treat.
Having this Easter party was very important for our clients to feel included and to have a little fun sometimes.
We really love our parties at North Shore and we go all out to make sure it’s always a memorable day for everyone.
