Mayor Jamieson - Honouring our seniors
  • Thursday 17 August 2017

We are very fortunate to have a vibrant and community minded seniors population here on our Sunshine Coast.

And they are continuing to make an invaluable contribution every day to the economy, our community initiatives and to maintaining our outstanding natural environment.

It is only fitting that their contributions and on-going efforts are recognised and celebrated and that is what we will do in Seniors Week 2017 from Saturday until August 27.

Seniors Week provides a very powerful opportunity for us to appropriately acknowledge our seniors and what they add, in many ways, to our region.

Whether it involves offering business advice based on a lifetime of experience, volunteering in a community organisation, helping out in the extended family by caring for grandchildren, our Sunshine Coast is a richer place thanks to the efforts of our seniors.

To help make the Coast even better for our growing number of seniors,  please fill out the Sunshine Coast Positive Ageing survey, available at our libaries, customer service centres and on our website.

It closes on August 31.
