Birthday treat for Pines

In keeping with the spirit of Older People Month, many Lions recently helped celebrate the Pines’ birthday.

The event is supported every year by Lions and the residents of the Pines eagerly look forward to it.

Three residents celebrating birthdays during the month of September were provided with gifts and all residents were treated to a special meal and a birthday cake.

Entertainment was provided by Blake Hurlston and Steve Welds. Many residents sang along to gospel music and well-know folk & country songs.

Lion President, Anthony Ritch, said: ‘Our visit really brightens up their day and it is always a humbling and enriching experience for us as well. We learn something new from them every time we visit and I encourage the community to help us Reach Out to the many elderly citizens in our community.’
