Bribie Orchids On Show

Posted by McKenzie | 28 Oct 2019

McKenzie Aged Care recently sponsored the latest Orchid Show on Bribie Island and what an amazing sight to behold!

Bribie Island Orchid Society has been established for over 32 years, holding monthly meetings to welcome new and experienced growers to the wonderful world of orchid growing. They provide an opportunity to share their horticultural knowledge with locals and hold orchid shows to showcase these beautiful plants twice a year.

This year, McKenzie Aged Care (Bribie Cove) sponsored the ‘Vanda section’. There were prizes given for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place and so many beautiful entries that it seemed impossible to narrow it down to just three.

We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Orchid’s and getting the opportunity to have a chat with visitors and Orchid enthusiasts across the day. Many were very interested in McKenzie and our aged care and retirement living options on the island.
A family member of one of our McKenzie Residents, who was presenting on the day, spoke very highly of our Bribie Cove community, sharing with the group how wonderful the staff and level of care is at our home.

At McKenzie we take every opportunity to support our local community groups and give back where we can. A huge ‘thank you’ to the Bribie Island Orchid Society for allowing us to be part of this wonderful show.
