Tierpoort Seniors celebrated the month of love and caring on 6 February with hosts Estelle Prinsloo and Flip du Plessis at Leribisi Lodge.

To suit the occasion of ‘Valentine’s Opera’, most of the 60 participants were dressed in white or red and the tables were decorated with hearts, red flowers and serviettes. Red iced tea, with a variety of berries, was served at the tables.

Each senior was welcomed with a heart-shaped sucker carrying a special message of love. They then had to walk around to find a duplicate message, wishing that person a happy Valentine’s day. Many hugs and kisses were exchanged.

After the scrumptious watermelon, feta and mint starters, the participants watched a DVD of Andrè Rieu, ‘The Magic of Maastricht, 30 Years’.

Lunch was prepared and served by the committee in the form of tapas platters with a variety of meats, salads, dips and bread. Fruit salad and ice-cream ended this exiting morning.
