Moama’s Southern Cross Care residents celebrated in style at a gangster and roaring 1920s ball on Wednesday.
Almost all residents and about 80 guests enjoyed the festivities, which saw many colourful and stylish outfits.
‘‘It was quite a successful day,’’ lifestyle co-ordinator Debbie Bennett said.
‘‘Last year we had a debutante ball theme and dance and the residents enjoyed it so much we decided to make it an annual event.’’
Ms Bennett said the residents had great fun dressing up and that she had received many positive comments.
The day was carried out with the help of Murray River Singers, specifically Erica Buckley, and SCoolHouse Rock and Swing dancers.
Next up for residents is a fashion parade on Tuesday at 10.30am, where they hope to raise money for new equipment for the residents, while they will have a master chef cook off next month.
Ms Bennett thanked the volunteers for helping the residents and prepare the afternoon.
