Ron Smith celebrates Heritage Day

Ron Smith Care Centre started its Heritage Day celebrations the week before, under the theme ‘ubuntu’.

The care centre was decorated with various pictures, flags and other items that represented the residents’ different cultures and traditions.

The actual day was celebrated the day before the public holiday, on 23 September.

Each wing decorated their own table and staff dressed up in traditional dress or colourful casual clothes. There were prizes for the best decorated table, resident with the best traditional outfit and staff member with the best traditional outfit.

Everyone enjoyed a fun-filled day, and a delicious traditional meal of samp and beans, followed by koeksisters.
