Oak Tree had the pleasure of hosting an Italian Luncheon for 120 seniors at its village in Warwick QLD this week.
In almost picture perfect weather, Oak Tree served up a traditional Penne and Bolognese feast as part of Seniors Week celebrations. Oak Tree staff began preparations in the early morning to make sure the 12pm deadline was met…and it was!
We also had the pleasure of hearing some fine musicians during the afternoon – Ralph and Victor De Pasquale travelled up from Brisbane to play their traditional Italian pieces and add a bit more spice to the Italian theme. All in sundry were unanimous in their appreciation of their performance – the boys were well supported by Irene who came up from Stanthorpe for the day. Many thanks to them all. Some of the songs are still going around in my head!
This is the second year now that we have hosted this event – it represents a wonderful opportunity for Oak Tree to give back to the community that has supported us since we opened our doors to Warwick Seniors. The event also allows our current residents to showcase their home – at Oak Tree, we believe that villas become homes once people move into them. Our residents add their personal touch to not only their villas but also their gardens. We are constantly amazed at how villas transform to homes – it really makes our villages a great place to live and gives us, at Oak Tree, a great deal of satisfaction.
Our staff are also a big part of these events. Many thanks to James and Jenny (our Warwick Village Managers) as well as Christy, Tarin, Mel and Michelle from Head Office in Brisbane. It’s important to us at Oak Tree to have interaction between our staff and our residents whenever possible. This allows everyone in our organisation to be exposed to, and understand, the needs of our residents.
If you missed out this year, jump in early next year when we issue the invitation. Not only will you be well fed but you’ll have a great time and see first hand the great lifestyle our residents enjoy.
If you can’t wait until then, call us and arrange a visit to the village anytime. This goes for all of our villages – from Cairns to Hobart and many places in between. Browse the website to see if there’s a location that appeals to you.
Until next time…
