Glenvale Villas Supported Living Community recently marked its 100th resident milestone with a celebratory morning tea attended by Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio.
Along with Mayor Antonio, Cr Geoff McDonald, and Chamber of Commerce CEO Greg Johnson were special guests invited to attend a celebratory morning tea hosted by Glenvale Villas to mark the occasion.
The Mayor kindly assisted with a tribute paid to the 100th resident, Jean Waugh, who received flowers and the honour of cutting the celebration cake.
The restaurant, decorated with purple and white balloons and fresh flowers, was a buzz of excitement as everyone enjoyed delicious savoury canapés and beautifully presented sweet treats that were generously washed down with tea and coffee.
Entertainer Scott Tweety added to the festive atmosphere, providing music enjoyed by all.
Project manager Lynda Gallagher and Gregg Hewitt were also on hand to show their support, and were overjoyed with the overall success of the event.
“The 100th resident is such an important milestone for Glenvale Villas, and we congratulate Jean Waugh on choosing our supported living community,” said Lynda.
“Since our first resident moved in back in April, 2007, Glenvale Villas has continued its mission to provide top quality care for our residents within a supported living community that is safe, private, friendly and professional.”
“Glenvale Villas, recognised among industry peers as the best of its kind in Queensland and nationally, has played a key role in reshaping the concept of aged care and retirement living as a Supported Living Community.”
“This is something we felt was really needed in the Toowoomba area.”
“Glenvale Villas is one of the longest and most successful supported living communities in Australia today in an emerging sector that is committed to improving the future of aged care for all Australians,” said Lynda.
“We thank manager Gayle Gardiner and all the Glenvale Villas staff for their ongoing professionalism and support, and for making the 100th resident celebration such a memorable event.”
