Emerald Fashion Show
August 19, 2016 Leslie Teal

Emerald Retirement Residence Fashion Show Featuring Golden Age Apparel was a huge success on Thursday August 19, 2016.  Our own models included residents – Linda, Fran, Doris, Pat, Fran, Muriel and Chewy.  Patti of Mobile Hairdressing Services was busy doing makeup and hair.

We served tea, complete with English pastries and cheese and crackers. This event was absolutely free.  Some guests wore their best dresses and fascinators in their hair.  The room was decorated in lovely blues, yellows, pinks and bright green and the flowers were provided by Mullens Garden Market in Niagara Falls.

As the tea began pouring – our good natured models started down the catwalk and then they circulated throughout the room to show off these gorgeous outfits.  The ladies from Golden Age Apparel expertly outfitted the Emerald Retirement Residents with just the right look.  Our favourite therapy dog Chewy showed off his new Olympic vest escorted by his sensational owner Fran.

Our entire staff pitched in with this great event.  We “got by with a little help from our friends” in this luxury senior residence.  A special thanks goes out to Fran Martins and Chewy, Lynda Stirret and our good neighbours – Coronation Center.

Ron Dewberry sang and entertained the room with his charming show and smooth voice.  He is a regular and favourite performer at the Emerald Retirement Residence.

The afternoon was a fun filled exciting time at the Emerald.  The finale was equally spectacular!   In true spirit of fun and excitement – our final two models came out in lovely dresses and accessories!  Upon a closer look, we were delighted to discover that under the long blonde and brunette wigs and makeup – was none other than our own Roger and Stan!

These two good sports found the perfect outfits, accessories and shoes at the Coronation Center in Niagara Falls.  All of our models came back for the final bow.  Great afternoon with great friends and fun times – always at the Emerald!!
