Skye's birthday celebrations for 97 year old Pat
She may be 97, and our oldest resident in Skye, but she certainly is just as spritely, vibrant and enthusiastic about life as the rest of us - or even more so in some ways!
At 97 Pat can still knit and read without spectacles and is widely known for her trivia knowledge, so much so we think she could probably win Hot Seat!
This week we proudly helped celebrate Pat's 97 years of adventure together with her family, fellow residents and friends. We decked the community centre out with balloons, a guest of honour table, happy birthday posters and all the rest whilst a happy 36 residents and 24 family members filled the room with fun and good spirit.
Great food was shared, toasts and speeches were made, and most importantly of all, Pat beamed with happiness the whole night through.
We have so much pleasure when we see our wonderful facilities being used for this type of occasion. All the family members were so happy to see the support rallied behind Pat and we, of course, were very proud to be involved in the special celebration.
Pat is very much a loved member of the Oak Tree family.
We really hope you enjoyed your special day Pat! Next year's birthday will be even better!
