“Racing” into Senior’s Week

Oak Tree had pleasure in hosting the annual Ladies Race Day in Warwick QLD last Saturday. The event proved a great success despite a chilly south westerly blowing during the day.

It was fabulous to have most of our Oak Tree Warwick residents in attendance. Oak Tree sponsored two races on the day and everyone had the chance to punt. I’m not sure how they all finished up in that respect but I didn’t do well – maybe next year!

Sponsoring such events is an important focus for Oak Tree in our regional locations. Our residents are almost always local people who have worked and lived in the town or city for most of their lives. Sponsoring an event like this gives Oak Tree an opportunity to give something back to the community and support the city’s endeavours.  As I write, Oak Tree is fully engaged in Senior’s week around QLD. The next week or so sees us engaging in local activites, hosting events in our Community Centres and supporting the seniors in our local catchments.  Oak Tree is much more then a place to live…it’s a place where our residents can continue to connect and participate in their communities. On the 28th of August we will host, cook and serve some 120 seniors in our Community Centre in Warwick – the theme is Italian and, like last year, we are hoping it will be a roaring success. It’s just another way to give back to the local community.

Moving to Oak Tree doesn’t mean losing touch with your friends and family. In fact, it provides a great opportunity to strengthen those bonds – our villages are always frequented by family and friends. Many of our residents have come to the village on recommendation from an existing resident. Of course you can come and inspect the village at any time, but what better way to enjoy the lifestyle then with friends and family?  Sharon Rankin along with her husband Ron will welcome Sharon’s mother, Grace, to their village in Warwick this week – what a great story!!

Until next time
