Early Easter joy at Centaur Memorial

The Easter smiles have arrived early for residents at Bolton Clarke’s Centaur Memorial residential aged care community at Caloundra, who hosted visitors from neighbouring communities and from Bolton Clarke Fernhill for the annual Easter concert.

The concert is now in its 26th year and residents, team members and volunteers look forward to catching up with friends and enjoying a morning of entertainment and fun.

This year’s celebration featured a performance from ever-popular young dancer Ruby, a Congo-line and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Residents took to the dance floor to rock and roll favourites and – in line with the Easter theme – the chicken dance.

Centaur Memorial Diversional Therapist Pam Grieg said the event was a highlight of the year, helping keep the Easter spirit alive and bringing families and friends together.

“We have dancing and wheelchair dancing and there’s a lot of happy people,” she said.

“We all really look forward to it and we are so pleased to be able to host three other communities to join in on the fun. The team and volunteers do a fantastic job to put it all together.”

Resident Val said a highlight was welcoming visiting friends.

“It’s lovely to see the buses come from the other communities,” she said.
