Happy Fantastic Father’s Day!

Wishing all Fathers a very fantastic Father’s Day on the 21 June 2020!

Areena Riverside Resort would like to send a special Father, Ed Rathbone, the Father of Areena, a big hug and thank you, for all that he does, as a dad, a boss and a friend.

We celebrate together the gift that is a Father. Happy Father’s Day, Dads!

We have an original poem for Father’s Day by Meryl Klanfar, our very own Areena book keeper:


(From his son)

Mom’s OK, she has chores and distractions

And Face Book and her favourite Kindle,

But Dad shuns these vain interactions.

And his options are starting to dwindle.

He would like to be out on the Highway

On his bike, with the wind in his hair

But instead, he is watching some “re-play”

With yesterday’s heroes to cheer.

He would like a fat steak on the fire

With a beer and some sociable folk

But social restraints are still dire

And he’ll have to make do with a Coke.

As for me, with no friends and no schooling

I would like him to show me the way

With wisdom and laughter and fooling

And shake hands at the end of the day……
