Christmas Pantomime: Sleeping Beauty

Our D.O.N Dawn McDonald introduced the Christmas Panto at Clermont back in 2006 (a treat she brought with her from Jacaranda in the 1990s), and everyone here loves it and looks forward to it every year.

It's a wonderful concept and I encourage anyone to put one on, make sure to get the crowd involved, invite families and friends.
You will have a lot of fun.

Share your Poems

A poem that was introduced to our Poetry & Music session by one of our residents, which she loves to recite every week is Memory by Zora Cross.
This poem has become a favourite of everyone in our group.

Late, late last night, when the whole world slept,
Along to the garden of dreams I crept.
And I pulled the bell of an old, old house
Where the moon dipped down like a little white mouse.
I tapped the door and I tossed my head:
"Are you in, little girl? Are you in?" I said.
And while I waited and shook with cold
Through the door tripped me---just eight years old.
I looked so sweet with my pigtails down,
Tied up with a ribbon of dusky brown,
With a dimpled chin full of childish charm,
And my old black dolly asleep in my arms.
I sat me down when I saw myself,
And I told little tales of a moon-land elf.
I laughed and sang as I used to do
When the world was ruled by Little Boy Blue.
Then I danced with a toss and a twirl
And said: "Now have you been a good, good girl?
Have you had much spanking since you were Me?
And does it feel fine to be twenty-three?"
I kissed me then, and I said farewell,
For I've earned more spanks than I dared to tell,
And Eight must never see Twenty-three
As she peeps through the door of Memory.

Poetry Club

I have been running a poetry and music group now for around 2 years, if your Residents are anything like mine, the love for this group will grow stronger every week and you'll get in trouble if for some reason you can run the group on the scheduled day.
Good luck with your group.

I signed up a few weeks ago, and have been using your resources almost daily, either directly or to get more ideas for activities.
A great site, keep up the hard and wonderful work.
Thank you
