Rowena Jackson Retirement Village Col Houston on his South Island Tour

'The corridors are alive with the sound of music'... Residents and staff alike are very grateful to our dedicated entertainers who come regularly to entertain us and make us smile. Recently we were delighted by a visit from Col Houston. His arrival in Invercargill has been thwarted with bad luck. Last year as he was on his way the earthquake struck Christchurch and Col cancelled his trip to return home and check on his family.  After that he commenced his tour a second time only to have an accident on the road! We were relieved to hear that he was not injured but unfortunately the same could not be said of his vehicle.

Col Houstin has been a regular annual event at Rownea Jackson for a number of years, Col retired from his Real Estate career at the age of 65 and decided he was bored. He recalled the times in his early twenties in Holland where he had sung in pubs and decoded to stetch his vocal cords again. We were pleased to tap our toes to the old familar tunes and chuckle at the jokes. Thanks for a great afternoon Col and happy travels!
