Residents will be reminded of fun and energetic memories that polka dots brought them when the new ladylike print swiftly became popular over the years.  Starting from the 1920s, when Disney cartoon darling Minnie Mouse wore polka dots and later to the 60s with the release of Brian Hyland’s hit song, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”.
It was a style that was sought to make women extravagantly, romantically, eyelash-battlingly female again after a wartime period of shifting gender roles.
The Sub-Acute Dining Room will be decorated accordingly and staff and residents are encouraged to be dressed in polka dots to bring out this theme even more. Our entertainer, Exodus Supreme, is also willing to do a few songs with polka dot themes. Pictures will be taken and posted on Bulletin Boards.
