WE NEVER KNOW WHAT’S AROUND THE CORNER
By now, all residents have received a copy of the Resident Medical Information & Emergency Contact form plus a clear holder to stick to the back of their apartment Main Bedroom door for emergency services. As previously outlined, Ambulance Victoria now have in their system that if they are called out to a Hester Canterbury apartment, to check behind the main bedroom door for the form, that could potentially assist in the immediate diagnosis and / or treatment of the situation. To date, three residents have placed a copy of their form on file as back up, locked away in the office. Please let me know if you would like to have a copy on your personal file as well. Thank you for your support.
THE WAY TO YOUR HEART IS VIA CAKE
We will celebrate with cheer the August Birthday’s over a spot of cake at 3pm Thursday 24 August in the Club Lounge. Punctuality is key to cake.
LAUGHTER BALANCES OUT THE BRAIN
Families are typically dysfunctional and this can make way for hilarious outcomes, so Funny Friday’s Matinee movie is Parenthood with Steve Martin. If by chance you find yourself loitering in the basement at 1pm this Friday, why not rest your espardrilles in Hester Class for a while. It’s Free.
Week One of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 14 August.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
PRIZE PAINTINGS ON THE PENISULA
The coveted annual Archibald Prize is considered the most prestigious portraiture painting prize in Australia with a proud history dating back to 1921 and awarded to the best portrait. Open to Australian and New Zealand artists, the portraits encapsulate an individual distinguished in Art, Letters, Science or Politics and has witnessed its fare share of controversy over the years. This years Archibald Prize exhibition will be held at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery between 15 September and 5 November, 2023.
This Friday I will be meeting with the Manager of the Canterbury Centre to look into the potential of organizing the BASScare bus for a Hester Canterbury residents excursion to the Archibald exhibition. It would assist greatly if I had an idea of how many residents would be interested in attending and what day of the week would be most suitable. Please let me know if you would like to attend the Archibald Prize & I’ll keep you informed with its progress.
MASTERS OF THE KEY
It has been almost twelve months since the official policy was put in place around access to the Master Key Safe and the nomination of two residents (only) who have access to the key safe code. Revision of the current policy has uncovered points that require further clarification and / or amendment, which will hopefully be approved and presented to all residents prior to this years AGM. As it would be problematic to change the present Key Safe Code, ideally it would make sense to stay with the current status quo and retain the two nominated residents (John.F and Geoff) for a further 12 month period if they are accepting of the responsibility, however this can be discussed further with all residents if the need arises.
Have a wonderful week and take care.
