The highlight of our month of Wizard of Oz activities would have to be our Family Fun Day! We had the most delightful wee children from the local kindergarten in to sing to our residents, and Liz, the storyteller from our local library, read the story of the Wizard of Oz to them. The children had their faces painted, and they coloured in Wizard of Oz pictures. They devoured the delightful cupcakes we had for them and headed off home, to bed, I’m sure!
The care centre residents then enjoyed a joint happy hour in the atrium with the much loved Jocelyn playing lots of old songs including songs from the Wizard of Oz Film.
For the independent and serviced apartment residents, we had Roger & The Ramjets entertaining at our happy hour. They were absolutely fabulous and the residents had a great time dancing. As always, they didn’t fail to wow us with their amazing creativity in their costumes! We even had a hat made from the tin foil that had been covering the hot food!
Wizard of Oz will always be a story close to the hearts of Evelyn Page, both to the residents and the staff!
