Around 200 Sunshine Coast seniors were treated to a morning tea that came stacked with plenty of entertainment as Council continued its Seniors Week celebrations at Lake Kawana Community Centre today.
As well as enjoying some high tea delights cooked by students of the Kawana Waters State College, the guests enjoyed music from St Teresa’s Catholic College jazz and string ensembles and Norma Fox’s Merriatrics as well as a performance from Dance Obsession.
Mayor Mark Jamieson and Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay were among the special guests as Council acknowledged the vital role seniors play across our region.
The morning tea, held in conjunction with the Healthy Ageing Partnership, was part of a week-long celebration of activities and events that has included a range of free library events incorporating the Council of Ageing theme “It’s on for young and old”.
“Seniors Week is an opportunity for people of all ages to take a moment to recognise the valuable contribution seniors make to the Sunshine Coast,” Cr McKay said.
