St. Patrick’s Day brought a wave of festive cheer to our residential villages, with residents and staff embracing the spirit of the Irish holiday in delightful ways.

RFBI Leeton Masonic Village was transformed into a sea of green as residents and staff joined in the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Leprechauns seemed to be around every corner, while tables were adorned with tiny green hats, setting the stage for a day filled with laughter. Some residents got into the spirit by donning Irish-themed glasses, hats adorned with three-leaf clovers, and green bow ties or ties, adding to the festive atmosphere. Morning tea was a delight, with lime spiders and green iced cakes and biscuits served to residents, who relished the sweet treats.

Mavis and Barbara, two residents in the village, shared with us how much joy they got from the celebration. Mavis remarked, “It’s such a fun day, everyone is having so much fun,” while Barbara expressed, “It’s been such a lovely morning”. The highlight of the day was the performance by Sharon Benjamin, a fabulous entertainer who sang a medley of Irish songs, captivating the audience with her melodious voice. Residents clapped and danced along, appreciating the lively music and infectious energy.

Laughter could also be heard from RFBI Basin View Masonic Village, where residents and staff dressed up, played ball games, shared some quality Irish jokes and listened to traditional music.

Meanwhile celebrations in RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village were in full swing as residents and staff came together for a very green themed occasion. Tables were decorated, food was scrumptious, and residents were appropriately wearing some fun and festive Irish-themed accessories.

These celebrations exemplify the sense of community and joy that permeates through RFBI villages, where residents and staff come together to create meaningful moments and celebrate life to the fullest.
