My Home Christmas 2017

On the 3rd of December the My Home Residents and families gathered for our annual Christmas Party at the Glenorchy Football Clubrooms.

As the room filled with smiling, familiar faces, the chatter rose as everyone took their seats and caught up with old and new friends, family members and support staff. It wasn’t long before Ally V got us underway, we raised our glasses for those who were not with us this year, but of course still in our thoughts. We sang Happy Birthday to Michelle Sims who was celebrating her 40th Birthday and we rejoiced in being together to celebrate Christmas.

This year we had a DJ, so it wasn’t long before we were up on the dance floor boogieing to some old tunes, as the crowd danced along to the Village People, Abba and the Nutbush while our glorious food was being prepared in the Kitchen, and what a treat it was! Roast meats, vegetables and Ju, and Dessert of Pavlova or Pudding –  Thank you to the wonderful Service Managers and the Board for delivering our food to our tables. Crackers popped, laughter echoed, and conversations took place as everyone filled their bellies and enjoyed each other’s company.

What is the main event of a Christmas party? The question had been asked multiple times – “Is Santa Coming”?

Through the door came a jolly Santa with a huge smile – Merry Christmas! As everyone rushed back to their seats in excitement, Santa hand delivered gifts to each My Home resident at their tables, beaming smiles and eyes full of sparkles as everyone opened their gifts.

As the day was coming to an end, everyone started to say their goodbyes and a few more dances were had on the dance floor.

Thankyou to the Glenorchy Football Club, Jamie from Nightlife mobile music, Santa Clause and of course the Service Managers, The Board and all those who made our Annual Christmas party special.
