For the Geri-Antics this is a very big deal. We are a non-competive team that raises money to support resident care at Grove Park Home. Established 51 years ago, the Home cares for 143 long term care residents; the very old and those living with dementia. Not for profit and charitable, events like the Dragon Boat Festival raise awareness and funds for the Home.
