Age Care’s Intrepid Travellers
Two clients of Age Care Association, Jean and Maggie who regularly attend the coffee morning on a Tuesday in Calahonda were fortunate enough to sit next to each other at the summer Tea Party held at the Tamisa Golf Hotel. One of the entertainers during the occasion was an Elvis tribute artist. This was instrumental in the two ladies discovering that they both absolutely loved Elvis and singing Elvis songs. This led them to organising the trip of a lifetime to visit to Memphis, America to see everything they could that was connected with Elvis. They were exuberant in their descriptions of what they saw and their experiences. They went on The Memphis Riverboat on the Mississippi River; they visited The Elvis Mansions and Gardens, as well as much more. Another highlight for them was that they
met in the hotel a famous artist Ernie Patton who knew Elvis for 25 years and actually did a portrait of him of he gave them a small copy of the portrait.
They both wanted me to know that had it not been for Age Care they would
never have met and had such a wonderful adventure that they would remember forever.
