Laurel & Hardy for senior citizens
On May 17th Me and My Pal organised, with the cooperation of the retirement home Meredal in Erpe-Mere, a nostalgic film show for the residents of the retirement home and the adjacing service flats. These people grew up with Laurel and Hardy and since they are not shown anymore on television Me and my Pal wanted to offer the residents a fun film show which would definitely evoke memories of the good old days.
About 40 residents attended the film show and the were visibly amused by the antics of Stan en Ollie. We showed three shorts: Two Tars, Hog Wild and Helpmates.
Both the residents of the retirment home and the staff agreed that this initiative should be repeated.
So we have plans to go back during the long and dark winter months to bring some Laurel & Hardy joy to the retirement home.
We also have plans to bring a Laurel & Hardy film show to other retirement homes in the region.
