The Big "O" Party
On Friday 12th August, Oak Tree Cairns held their annual Birthday Party to honor those residents who faced the BIG “O” birthday (70 or 80 this year).
The Social Convener Olivia with her trusty team of Bruce, Carol, Robyn C. & Judy, did a magnificent job of organizing this event, with the theme Black & Gold, which was abundant in both the decorations and the splendidly dressed attendees who made a real impact with their black & gold regalia. Jo was chosen as the winner of the dress competition, and there was also a lucky door prize won by Chrys.
Residents' brains were challenged with a small quiz relating to events that happened in either 1936 or 1946, as befitted the 70 & 80 year old guests. Another box of chocolates won very deservedly by Table 4.
The delicious dinner was once again catered by Highland Spit Roast Catering and judging by the moans of delight, this was a winner also. The decorated birthday cake was duly dispatched by Gary C (70) and both Judy W. and Brian (80).
Guests were free to mingle and much table-hopping was in evidence. The “stayers” staggered home at approx. 11p.m. and all agreed this was another night to remember.
