Home owners help Story Dogs spin magical tales

16 September 2019 | by Halcyon

Dogs don’t judge, which is why the Story Dogs program works its magic on kids struggling to read.
With the mission of making reading fun for children, at least three Halcyon home owners and their dogs volunteer in the ground-breaking program in local schools.

Story Dogs involves young primary school kids sitting down and reading to a dog and its handler for about 20 minutes once a week.

On the Sunshine Coast, Halcyon Landing’s Marilyn ...

16 September 2019 | by Halcyon

Spring is in the air and with it the promise of blooming flowers and crisp summer vegetables. In the spirit of the season, My Halcyon Days spoke to gardening groups at our communities to find out how their vegie gardens grow.

From aubergines to zucchinis, Halcyon’s gardeners almost have the alphabet covered when it comes to the fruit and vegies they produce. Ranging from the traditional to the exotic, their community gardens are so extensive that it’s more a question of what they don’t grow.

Aside from the usual lettuces, tomatoes, lemons and oranges, they produce chillies, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, Tahitian ...

Don's rolling up his sleeves and saving lives

24 June 2019 | by Halcyon Glades

With flu season underway, the Australian Red Cross is appealing for more people to donate blood as many of their regular donors are sidelined by the dreaded lurgy. One Halcyon home owner is certainly doing his bit to help.

Halcyon Glades newcomer Don Young is a life saver, but not the kind you see at the beach.
The 67-year-old saves lives simply by rolling up his sleeve twice a month, sitting back and giving blood at the Australian Red Cross.

“For me, it’s just something that I do for somebody else,” he said.

Don recently donated for the 350th time saying the experience ...
