Indian Independence Day celebrated at Point Cook Manor

Independence Day in India is celebrated annually on August 15th.  It is a National Holiday that marks India’s Independence from British Rule.

At Homestyle’s Point Cook Manor Residence there are a number of Indian staff who shared this celebration with their colleagues and residents.  This is the 2ndtime this occasion was celebrated; the first time was in 2016.

Staff and residents alike had a wonderful time commemorating Indian Independence Day.  The Lounge Area was decorated with a large Indian Flag and in the Dining Room the tables had beautiful flowers displayed on each table.  Lunch was served with typical Indian food – although not too spicy or hot for our elderly residents.    Dishes included Butter Chicken, Vegetable Pilaf Rice, Poori, Tempered Potato & Vegetables with mustard & curry leaves, cucumber raita and dessert was the dry fruit Payasam.

Indian Music and dances were shown on the TV.  Some of the kitchen staff even entertained residents with a dance performance after lunch!
