September birthdays and rugby fever celebrated with Bok-themed bash

On September 7, Rand Aid’s Inyoni Creek Retirement Village came alive with a spirited celebration that combined September birthdays with the excitement of the Rugby World Cup kick-off, all under the lively Springbok theme.

To kick things off, staff members made a grand entrance by singing Hier kom die Bokke, setting the tone for an energetic and cheerful celebration.

Residents proudly displayed their team spirit by donning Springbok rugby jerseys, and staff members enthusiastically joined in on the fun, wearing rugby-themed attire.

The highlight of the day was a rugby-themed quiz, expertly hosted by village manager Jenny Tonkin. Social worker Shaun Victor and the ever-enthusiastic village sister, Jana Bezuidenhout, acted as linesmen for the quiz, adding their own flair to the event. The quiz brought out a competitive spirit in the residents, testing their rugby knowledge and sharing plenty of laughter in the process.

After the quiz, residents were treated to a delightful spread provided by deputy manager Marinda Looyen. Debbie Kotze, the administrator, captured the event’s essence with photographs and kept score for the ‘best-dressed’ competition.

But the fun didn’t stop there. Jenny led residents in a spontaneous Mexican wave, adding an extra layer of excitement to the festivities.

With the Rugby World Cup season officially underway, residents left the celebration eagerly anticipating the games ahead.
