Who else enjoyed walking into the Dinner and Dance last week listening to @rock_choir ?

They were amazing! Thank you again for getting everyone ready for an evening of entertainment 🎶

Mondays can make everyone feel blue.

Just remember today is a new day, November is a new month and Mondays are the start of a new week!

Go out today and set yourself a measurable goal. Sometimes, when we feel we have completed something then it can give us a new burst of energy 🔋

What are your goals this week?
