Some iconic characters from the cinema were seen at The St James recently when the Residents dressed up for their annual calendar shoot. Themed ‘At the Movies’ everyone went all out to dress the part with characters ranging from Lady Macbeth, Mr Chips (Goodbye), Carmen Miranda, John Wayne, James Bond 007, Scarlett O’Hara, Zorro, Catwoman, Daisy from ‘The Great Gatsby’, Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and others. Food and Beverage manager, Johan le Roux bounded in dressed as King Kong causing chaos (as he does) followed by great gales of laughter. He also provided the perfect prop for Dian Fossey of Gorillas in the Mist.
The St James produces a calendar each year for the Residents and their families and the photo shoot has become a keenly anticipated event says Managing Director, Gael Baldwin.
Calendars are also available to the public and are on sale at R50 each. These may be ordered from firstname.lastname@example.org and collected from The St James or will be posted to you. Some of these proceeds are used to provide small cheer to Residents of Lavender Hill Old Age Community at Christmas time.
