Rina and I (and several other ladies) were asked to bring eats: Rina made her famous chocolate cake and I made a plate of cream puffs. Before we set off, we asked Erica to take a photo of us.

The table was laden with delicious cakes, tarts and savories
I'd convinced Grant that he should attend as he was one of the donors and also invited! Here he is with our erstwhile neighbor, Pienkie and MIL, Pam
Waiting for the function to begin, you could indulge in a glass of sherry or fruit juice
Gradually guests and residents arrived

Grant and Edwin wait patiently for the snacks!
Phillip (known fondly as Flip) finally arrived from his butcher business in town and started the proceedings
Flip and his wife, Hester realized in 2000 that the retirement center needed a frail care unit. Here, though he sang the praises of the professional staff and their caregivers who have revamped and refurbished the unit into a state-of-the-art yet homely haven for the frail and aged
Grant and I had to get back home for another appointment so Sr Luette offered to take us on a tour of the frail care unit.
