RFBI Leeton Masonic Village has been celebrating families! In recognition of International Day of Families, which is held annually and reminds us how important family is, we brought residents and their families together for a memorable celebration.

Under beautiful sunny skies, we threw a big BBQ with a very special guest! We were fortunate to have Jake Speer, best known for his role on the popular TV show Home and Away, join us for the BBQ. The presence of this local celebrity added an extra touch of excitement and joy to the occasion.

The event kicked off with a heartfelt Recognition of Country speech delivered by Elijah Ingram, acknowledging and honouring the traditional custodians of the land.

Our General Manager, Sarah warmly welcomed everyone, expressing her gratitude for the families’ presence and their contribution to the vibrant community of RFBI Leeton Masonic Village. Neville, a husband of one of our residents, and our Regional General Manager, Anthony were busy working their magic on the BBQ to serve a delicious lunch.

We were very fortunately treated to a wonderful vocal performance by Jake, who immediately captivated residents and staff. His connection to the village was a touching coincidence. Jake’s mother and one of the residents had worked together on a community assist program called Jumpstart, a fundraising group supporting local families in need. Growing up in Leeton, Jake’s ties to the community made his presence even more special.

It was wonderful to bring everyone together for a shared, scrumptious meal and to celebrate what truly makes families special!
