We wish you a Merry Christmas

On Thursday the 13th of December, the Simone lounge room at Arcare Taigum was rearranged and decorated for the upcoming Carols by Candlelight.

From 6pm clients and families gathered in the lounge and where given a battery-operated candle and a lucky door ticket.

At 6:30pm Cathy lifestyle coordinator got the evening started and introduced Kenny Cougan the entertainer who was leading the carol singing.

The audience was in fine form especially the kids during the singing of Jingle Bells.

Kenny got the audience whistling along to some favourite old tunes as well.

Sixteen carols later we finished the night with We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

Kenny’s last job was to draw the lucky door prize – won by a resident’s family member.

Cathy thanked Kenny for leading the carols, thanked everyone for coming and wished everyone a Merry Christmas on behalf of Arcare Taigum.

Everyone was invited to have supper after the event – prepared for by Stan the chef.
