- SPECIAL CONVERSATION ON THE COUCH
We are very pleased to welcome BASScare’s CEO Craig Bardrick for our next informal Conversation on the Couch on Wednesday 6 September at 10:30am. Craig will cheerfully discuss BASScare’s growth & the benefits for Hester Canterbury, plus engage in a light Q&A with the residents. So grab a coffee and cake and settle into the Club Lounge for an informative morning tea.
- HESTER CLASS
This dark comedy drama, ‘A Man Called Otto’ will find you cheering for the villain, a neurotic and bombastic overlord of his ordinary little cul-de-sac, who is fighting his own battle with heartache. Tom Hanks plays the cantankerous Otto and does not flinch in this demanding role, delivering a sterling performance that will see you navigate a rollercoaster of emotions. Though slow to kick off, the movie quickly picks up pace when a new family befriends Otto. Showing on the Big Screen Tuesday 5 September at 7:30pm.

SON ET LU·MI·ÈRE
For those lovers of beautifully crafted and reposeful music set to a back drop of transcending images, then prepare to lose yourself for 30 minutes in perfect acoustics, while being captivated by experiential pictures of a place time has forgotten, on the Hester Class big screen. Fitzie will be presenting his Visual Soiree this Friday 1 September at 4:15pm in the Cinema as a precursor to the more animated and verbal Friday Happy Hour at 5pm in the Dining Room.
SHOWCASE YOUR EXTERIOR
Last week I introduced you to ‘The Good Gardener’ Heather, a specialist in balcony gardens and pot plants. Well if this has sparked your interest then maybe you would like to attend Morgan Glen Iris for a talk on Balcony Gardens presented by Sustainable Gardening Australia on Friday 8 September at 2pm, followed by afternoon tea. Please RSVP to me by Monday 4 September if you wish to attend.
WITH LOVE AND THANKS
This Sunday 3 September will be a time for gratitude, a time to acknowledge, and a time for reflection as we celebrate Fathers we know and their contribution, be it big or small. To all those present and past Dads, we thank you. Happy Fathers Day
Week Four of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 04 September.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
ABSENCE MAKES THE PROXY GROW FONDER
Like any year, your vote on the Hester Canterbury Annual Budget is essential. With the BASScare Hester Canterbury Annual General Meeting now locked in for Friday 15 September, if you know you will be an apology and unable to attend, then please organize a Proxy Form from the Office or the Returning Officer and ensure that it is completed and placed in mailbox 104 with ample time to spare.
Please note that it is One Vote per apartment. Thank you.
IT’S A BIRD IT’S A PLANE IT’S!
If you find yourself looking up to see what all the commotion is on Thursday 7 and possibly Friday 8 September, it’s probably the contractors that will be working on Apartment 2.05’s balcony tiles. There may be some noise and dust involved and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and will look to limit it as much as possible.
TELL ‘EM THEY’RE DREAMING
For anyone that grew up in suburbia Australia decades ago, you’ll know what it’s like to live in a true blue Aussie family, where the only filter was on your car, not your mouth and mateship was as readily available as a Four ‘N’ Twenty Pie at the footy.
So on the back of another record crowd last Friday (4), this weeks Funny Friday Matinee pays tribute to the wholesome Aussie battler in the timeless classic, ‘The Castle’ If you have not had the pure pleasure of seeing it before, buckle in this Friday at 1pm in Hester Class for an Australian comical masterpiece.
