Castor’s Paintearth Lodge was transformed into the sin city of Las Vegas on Jan. 18. Residents were treated to some of the different gambling games commonly seen on the Las Vegas strip. Since no trip is complete without a Las Vegas show, The King himself, Elvis Presley made an appearance and treated the staff and residents to a number of his hits, and some of those of Johnny Cash as well. The event was organised to help break up the “dullness of January,” said lodge staff member Brenda Kneller. Kevin J Sabo photo
