Lakemba residents celebrate the Lunar New Year1 Feb 2022
Our residents at RFBI Lakemba Masonic Village have welcomed in the Chinese Lunar New Year in style.
The event that occurred on 1 February welcomes the beginning of a new year in East Asian culture based around moon cycles or the lunar calendar.
Our Leisure & Lifestyle team organised traditional Chinese cultural celebrations with red and gold themes throughout. Our amazing Catering Team prepared a delicious high tea of dumplings and spring rolls.
Our residents were gifted lucky money – red envelopes containing a gold coin to anchor the new year. The envelopes are a Chinese tradition designed to pass on a year of good fortune and blessings to the recipient. And we wish our residents all the best for the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Tiger.
We had a wonderful time celebrating and look forward to what this year brings.
