The rocking chairs were in full swing at one retirement residence in Campbell’s Bay Saturday afternoon, as residents fundraised for their home in a unique way, all their own.
That’s because the Friends of St. Joseph’s Manor held a Rock-A-Thon, where 12 residents swayed the early afternoon away to some live music, as they raised money for the new wing of the building.
Starting at 1 p.m., six of the residents began their task, taking to the chairs as the group enjoyed the music of Will Rivet and Pat Shea. Putting the chairs to good use, they rocked for a full hour, before another six took over at 2 p.m., all the while joined by many family members.
