A snag, a slice and a yarn

Starting on the first Friday in June, we are re-introducing barbecue lunches at Prom Country House on a monthly basis. This is a chance for staff, residents, families and visitors to take half an hour to chat with each other and listen to the things that are important to all of the stakeholders in our aged care community. For me, it's a great opportunity to interact with the residents which I miss out on at times along with some of the other workers while trying not to burn the meat. Our fundraising committee will make slices and desserts every month and refreshments will also be available.

Every month, the barbecue venue will rotate to each wing and whilst all are invited, we emphasise participation towards a particular 20 residents each month. They will be asked if they wish to help with the cooking, serving and welcoming of visitors to their courtyard wing. We hope that this will create a feeling of belonging to their community and for everyone involved at PCAC to be better acquainted.

These barbecue lunches will occur on the first Friday of every month. The first one, kicking off in the blue wing. Everyone who has an involvement with PCAC, or wishes to, is welcome to attend.
While discussing events, we are holding a Jazz night cabaret fundraising event on Saturday 21 June at the Foster War Memorial Arts Centre. The headline act will feature the Streeton Court 17 piece Big Band. The South Gippsland Secondary College music students will also be performing on the night. Cost is $25 per person, BYO drinks and nibbles with a light supper provided. You can book a table of ten or single tickets at Revelations in Main St, Foster Tel: 5682 1381. All proceeds go towards valuable equipment for resident care.
