Quota sparks smiles at special times of year | PHOTOS

Faces at IRT Dalmeny lit up with joy as Quota club members visited with gifts of fruit and chocolate for Father's Day, September 1.

"One of our favourite ways of brightening the lives of others is visiting the nursing homes," Quota's community service chairperson Susan Pryke said.

Quota International of Narooma visits both Esta and IRT nursing homes in Dalmeny, three times a year.

"We visit the residents in their rooms or the common areas and have a brief chat," Ms Pryke said.

"We do this for Mother's Day and Father's Day, with everyone getting a treat (not just fathers on Father's Day or mothers on Mother's Day). We also visit the nursing homes just before Christmas.

"The residents really appreciate the opportunity to chat as much as the special treat, and look forward to seeing us.

"It is a small thing we do to make special times of the year a little brighter for residents," she said.
