Event. They have paved the way for the generations that follow, and now it is time for our seniors to enjoy a little rest and relaxation.
Seniors Week, on from Monday October 16 to Sunday October 22, is a celebration run by COTA Tasmania which this year is partnering with Parks and Wildlife Service to encourage seniors to venture out.
To the theme ‘Getting Outdoors’, the 20th annual Seniors Week is celebrated all over the state, however closer to home there are some exciting events taking place.
On Monday October 16, seniors are invited on an outing to Dip Falls and Stanley. A bus will pick up passengers for the day trip, there will be morning tea and lunch and plenty of activities.
“Because Dip Falls has had some major upgrades we thought it would be nice to take people there for a look,” said Jodie Saville, youth and community officer at Circular Head Council.
“Once there, people can do whatever suits their ability and comfort level: walk down the many steps, take a short stroll to the viewing platform or just look from the bus.
“After that we’re going to Stanley to have a little treasure hunt and picnic lunch with some Stanley Primary School students.”
The treasure hunt will involve young and experienced working in pairs to collect treasures in the natural environment and earn points for their findings.
The following day, Tuesday October 17, the annual Mayor’s Afternoon Tea will be held at the Circular Head Community and Recreation Centre from 2 to 4pm.
To conclude the week’s special events is the concert at Smithton LINC on Thursday October 19 from 2 to 3pm. Read more about this in an upcoming edition of the Chronicle.
