During the Christmas period, we begin our night time activity of visiting the various Christmas displays around Arcare Eight Mile Plains.
This is our second year visiting Neil and admiring his amazing Christmas lights displays.
The clients really enjoyed seeing the different lighting combinations decorations.
Client Judith Tucker even shed a few happy tears as she thanked Neil for his efforts in putting up the display.
When we found out that Neil had started working on his Christmas Lights from October, we were all very impressed with his dedication and enthusiasm for this project.
It was all worth it as it brought many smiles and laughter to the clients.
For some of them, the Christmas night drive brought back a lot of memories of their own childhood experiences.
With the large number of clients at Arcare Eight Mile Plains, we went on a few bus trips over the weeks to enable different clients to experience the Christmas lights.
However, some clients loved it so much that they wanted to go a second time!
We all had a great time during this trip to see Neil’s impressive Christmas display as we sang Christmas carols along the way.
