George, celebrates 'Defender of the Fatherland Day' with his friends

George is a wonderful gentleman who is originally from Russia and still speaks fluent Russian with a member of staff at the Garden City Multi Service Centre.


One Morning George was explaining to a centre staff that the Defender of the Fatherland Day in Russia was approaching.  Typically, on this day they would celebrate people who had served or were serving in the Russian Armed Forces.


This year, George marked the day celebrating with his friends from the Garden City Multi Service Centre by going for lunch to his favourite Russian Café.  George took great pride in ordering food for everyone from the Russian menu.  Over lunch he spoke of stories from his days as a young boy celebrating with his family.  George was so proud to be able to share his memories with his friends.  He beamed with pride over his special day and could not wait to tell his wife.
