It’s no surprise that at Wellington Park, we love any excuse for a party and boy did we make the most of the month of July.

Celebrating America’s Independence Day, the activities room was decked out in American memorabilia with red, white and blue decorations aplenty and stars and stripes wherever you turned.

With a full house, our residents enjoyed a hearty meal of American-style cheese burgers with a wedge of dill pickle on the side. Suffice it to say, the pickles weren’t very popular, with many residents reluctant to try them, but we enjoyed devouring the rest!

We had a lovely lunch sitting back and listening to the talented Lachlan who entertained us with some old favourites such as Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York. Our residents took quite a shine to the young Lachlan with many posing for a picture with him.
