Tinonee Stars 2016

The brainchild of Executive Officer Sue Fardy, “Tinonee Stars 2016” is a calendar like no other. Tinonee Stars 2016 showcases 12 senior residents of Tinonee Gardens Multicultural Village, a non for profit aged care facility at Waratah.

It doesn’t feature sporting legends, pin ups, models or fantastic scenery. The calendar production was a team effort co-ordinated by our Resident Engagement Manager, Ms Jo Milson-Comerford, with costumes and props provided by friends of Tinonee, and photography provided pro bono by Von Mullane from YCM Photography.

The year commences with a sprightly ‘Annie get your gun’, then  James Bond leaps into March, Babe Pig in the city ushers in May and December features White Christmas, with a trio of residents regaled in spectacular Santa fashion.

Along the way we encounter Mary Poppins, Laurel and Hardy as well as a very elegant Audrey ‘Hepburnesque’ Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Sue Fardy said, “We are very social at Tinonee with residents enjoying a range of lifestyle activates like music therapy, drum circle, Tinonee choir, the annual spring ball, Christmas carols and themed events. This Tinonee Stars initiative just adds to our repertoire, is fun for residents, families and Tinonee staff and of course is a good fundraising exercise”.

Sales available through administration at Tinonee or by ringing 4967 6366.
