Companions of Caroona Auxiliary

Companions of Caroona Auxiliary held their monthly meeting with a great attendance and thought I would do an update of what the Auxiliary has been up to.

The household model which has begun is working very well at the moment and the residents are becoming very involved.

An update was given regarding the Brain Trainer Plus which was partly purchased by our Auxiliary. It is very popular and is moved around during the week to the different wings of the facility and is available to use anytime in the Ibis room during the weekend.

Prior to Christmas, the Auxiliary purchased a chicken coup for two (at the moment) and the residents are excited about the fresh eggs they are collecting. With the money they make for the eggs they purchase the chickens’ food. A competition was held to give them names.

The Auxiliary will be holding a Lamington Drive on June 4 at Joy’s, commencing 9am and collection after 3pm. Please phone Joy on 6646 1124 or Jan on 0438 664 985 to place your orders at $12 a dozen or $6 per half dozen.

If anyone would like to become a member of the Auxiliary information can be obtained by phoning Elaine on 6645 8697. The cost per year is $10.
