Celebrate ageing creatively during Seniors Week - 16 February 2015

Get ready to “Be Inspired” during this year’s Wagga Wagga Seniors Week celebrations to be held from 15 to 22 March.

Whatever your passion, there is something for everyone 50-plus to enjoy in this year’s program of highly interactive activities and events, which has the theme of Be Inspired.

“This year’s program is jam-packed, with more than 40 activities and events designed to inspire, excite and engage,” Chair of Wagga Seniors Week Committee Kate Brill said.

“A number of new recreational elements have been introduced this year that would not be possible to roll-out without the generous support of local businesses and community service organisations.”

Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director Environment and Community Services, Janice Summerhayes encouraged all of the community’s seniors to take part.

“With approximately a third of our city’s population aged 50 years and over, it is important to have a greater focus on seniors integrating and connecting with others, and this is one of the key aims of Seniors Week,” she said.

“Council is proud to fund and support local festivities that promote positive attitudes towards older people.

“I would strongly encourage everyone to pick up a copy of the program as possible so they don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in the week-long celebrations.”

Tickets go on sale on Monday 16 February and Seniors Week programs are available from the Civic Centre, Visitor Information Centre, Civic Theatre and Seniors Community Centre, or can be downloaded from Council’s website at www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/seniorsweek.
