ANNUAL SUMMER BARBECUEOne of the highlights of our year is our Annual Summer Barbecue. This year it was held on 26 June 2014. The weather was kind and we were able to have tables outside for the residents and their visitors. Old time music was played throughout the day and a good time was had by all.
