The 15th August 2017 was a very special day at Leisure Lea Gardens, when residents, friends and family gathered for the 100th birthday celebration of much-loved resident, Irene Hunter.
Held in the newly redecorated atrium, the party was a festive affair, with the tributes flowing for a very popular resident. Irene showed off the cards she received from the Queen, Governor-General and NSW Premier and said she attributed her long and healthy life to good family, good friends and nine very happy years at Leisure Lea Gardens.
Irene still lives in an independent unit and is an accomplished pianist. In 2008, she was chosen to be photographed with celebrity John Wood when he visited the village and her beautiful apartment was also featured in Leisure Lea Gardens’ brochure.
