It was programmed into our weekly program and several Residents joined in to write a little story about their life when they were ten.

It was thoroughly enjoyed.  Their Stories delighted.  It brought back fond memories of their childhood days.

Following the recent earthquakes in Nepal, Minnamurra staff donated goods, and created a raffle to raise money to donate to the Red Cross, to go directly to the Nepal effort.  We are proud to announce that our raffle raised $700.  The winner of the first prize was one of our residents Jean Mc Caig, second prize went to another resident Myra Savage and third prize was won by one of our staff members, Carla.  We are greatful to all the residents, staff and families for taking part.

I would like to introduce Helen (Viva) Rodwell, one of our residents here at Minnamurra.

The daughter of Nell Cooper and Vivian Sherry, born on the 27th January 1920

Minnamurra is almost 6 years old now and Viva was one of the first resident’s to accommodate a room here.

Living in Brisbane where she grew up, was the start of a long and varied career, teaching and music. Viva met her husband Jeffery Rodwell on Southport Beach Christmas 1941.

They were married in 1942, and then went on to have four children, Joanne, Helen, Brian and Jeffery.

At Minnamurra, our Christmas decorations are all ready for 2014 Christmas Party.

Santa will be paying a visit again this year.

We will be entertained by music trio 'The Bell', and dancing will ensue.

Have a very Merry Christmas abd Happy New Year from everyone at Minnamurra.
