Seniors Week, celebrated from 13 – 21 August, is an opportunity to come together to celebrate and recognise the important contribution our senior citizens make to the Whitsunday community.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said our senior citizens are an asset to the region and have contributed to the history of our community in so many ways.
“Seniors Week provides the opportunity to recognise the important role of seniors in theWhitsundays,” Cr Willcox said.
“This year’s Seniors Week theme titled ‘It’s on for young and old’ encourages the relationships between the youth of our community with our older residents,” he said.
“I extend my thanks to the volunteers and community groups who facilitate these events across the region each year.”
Council allocated funding of $2000 for Seniors Weeks celebrations in Bowen, Proserpine/Airlie Beach and Collinsville.
