Barry - winner of best dressed gent
Melbourne Cup Madness in Burpengary
Lots of fun was to be had at Oak Tree Retirement Village Burpengary this week with the Melbourne Cup festivities.
Residents dressed to the nines in typical Melbourne Cup high fashions, and gathered in the community centre to watch the race and enjoy the cup celebrations.
Residents arranged a delicious buffet lunch which was shared and enjoyed whilst watching the preliminary races and fashion parades.
Delving deep into their pockets to participate in the sweeps, all residents were hoping to be the winner of the big prize on the day.
Prizes were given out to "best dressed lady" going to Joy, and "best dressed gent" going to the very dapper looking Barry - congratulations to you both!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day including special guests from Churches of Christ who are regular visitors to our village and are becoming wonderful friends. Special mentions should made in appreciation for all of the extra effort resident, and social event organiser, Yvonne, went to in creating such a special, fun and memorial day for all to enjoy.
