Eggstra-special visitor hops into Rodney Park Village
A special large white fluffy guest helped a group of Mooroopna residents start Easter celebrations on Wednesday.
Easter bunny surprised Rodney Park Village's Waratah Lodge residents with a visit, handing out special decorated baskets filled with chocolate treats - and lots of hugs. Rodney Park Village activities and lifestyle officer Muna Riches said different activities were planned to brighten residents' days.
"Every special occasion - Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day - we try to do some kind of special celebration and activity for the residents," she said.
"I think they really enjoyed it and it was good to see them have a laugh and participate in activities."
Ms Riches said the activities also helped them to get involved with other people at Waratah Lodge.
"It enriches their lives when there are activities - some of them aren't able to get out, so they love going to activities in their own home," she said.
A special Easter cake was whipped up by the Shepparton Villages catering department and residents enjoyed a themed morning tea.
