Springtime Luncheon

Spring, a season of colour, flowers and warmth… just like Milperra at our Springtime Luncheon. Support worker Kristi did a fantastic job creating the perfect lunch time gathering. Flowers were collected to grace the table and guests had so much fun celebrating the season. After such a feast, what could be better than a laid-back beautiful afternoon listening to Vivaldi - La Primavera (of course!)



Once Upon a Time in the West

Jim, one of our guests at the cottage, just loves old Western movies. So, as a surprise, the Old West came to Milperra and clients and staff enjoyed a fun Western themed day. The dining room was transformed into a Wild West Saloon Bar and everyone dressed in their best cowboy gear. After a session of line dancing, photo opportunities were a must with hats, moustaches and bandanas.
