Seniors’ Week Concert
Tuesday, 8th April, 2008
Locals of all ages banded together to ensure Seniors’ Week got off to a positive start yesterday at the annual Seniors’ Week Concert. The concert is one of the many activities planned for the week which celebrates the valuable contribution seniors make to our community. Hundreds of elderly residents and their families packed the Entertainment Centre to watch the threehour concert, which featured local dance groups, a fashion parade, and a number of vocal acts. The event is organised by June Marie Bennett in conjunction with City Council.
Tameka Maczkowiack from Council’s Community Services’ said the day had proven popular in the city once again. “There’d be around 200 to 250 people here and we think that’s a pretty good turnout this year,” said Ms Maczkowiack. “Some people have seen the acts they wanted to and gone home, but at one stage there we had no free seats so there’s been more people than usual.” Ms Maczkowiack said the crowd appeared to have enjoyed the wide range of acts.
“I think everyone’s had a good time. There’s been good applause at the end of every act,” she said. “We’ve also had good feedback on the variety of performances - there’s been school kids right through to seniors.” Seniors will be able to take part in a number of activities for the remainder of the week, starting with free scrap-booking and exercise classes today. Places are limited at all activities, and those seeking further information or wishing to take part are invited to contact Ms Maczkowiack on 8080 3600 Seniors Week Activities: Today: 10am-11.30am: Scrap booking, Adkins Hardware.
