Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on October 21, 2014
Our recent Monday morning tea with a presentation from Prescare commenced at 10am with a gathering of around 54 interested residents. Valuable information by PresCare was offered regarding the services they can provide through their care programs to residents in their homes at Tranquil Waters.

Residents were then tantilised by the tasty meals that Prescare serve in their care program. The food was from the Contented Chef Range and served by Chef Scott Fraser. Three sampled main courses consisted of Apricot Chicken, Roast Pork and Beef Bourguignon. The Apple and Rhubarb Crumble dessert was a big hit too. This part of the presentation was most enjoyable!

We all know that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?

Cooking for Fair

To all of the marvellous cooks of the village, men as well as women, now is the time to dust off the microwaves, ovens and cook tops because we desperately need jams, pickles, cakes, biscuits and all other cooking items for the Cooking Stall at the fair. You responded most generously last year and I'm sure you will do so again this year, the Fair is just a week away!
