ROCK: Maree and Bill Oldham


THE roof was rocking this month as 95 residents and their friends, staff and local retirees partied to the Aveo Rocks National Tour.

Guests arrived in style at Aveo Freedom Aged Care Bendigo with many rockin’ outfits from the 50s and 60s in the hopes of taking out the prize for best dressed, which was awarded to Maree and Bill Oldham.

The live band, The Vincents, had everyone up and dancing with favourites from Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Drifters and The Beach Boys.

Guests enjoyed reminiscing their younger years of going out dancing and playing musical instruments themselves.

The food was also on theme, with a selection of mini hotdogs, beef sliders and hot chips.

A gelato and sorbet cart was on hand to provide dessert.

Food was enjoyed alongside a selection of wines from wine connoisseur, Darren Davis.

Guests enjoyed getting up on the dance floor to dance with professional rock ‘n’ roll dancers and Aveo staff, with Mary Potter and Gary Vaughan taking out the prize for best dancers.
