Residents at a Southport home were treated to an American themed day to mark the 4th of July.
MHA Connell Court organised a special menu which consisted of Salmon and Peas, vegetable burgers, turkey burgers, salt and pepper ribs and apple pie and custard for dessert.
Independence Day, known colloquially as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, establishing the United States of America.
Live entertainment in the form of an Elvis Presley impersonator was also on the menu, but unfortunately the performer cancelled due to ill health.
One of the lounges at the home was decorated in American flags and residents also played guess the famous American celebrity as well as a quiz on Elvis.
Cathay Rothwell, activity coordinator said:
“The residents had a great time celebrating the 4th of July and it was wonderful to see them taking everything in.
“Unfortunately, our Elvis impersonator cancelled but that didn’t stop us having a good time.
“We played guess the tune with famous hits that Elvis had sung and had a quiz on him.
“We had a discussion on famous American celebrities and some of our residents spoke about their own experiences of America.
“The kitchen staff prepared an amazing American themed menu as well as baking a sponge cake with an American flag.
“All of us had a great time, everyone was smiling, and it was great to see.”
