Series of free events to celebrate Murrumbidgee seniors

Murrumbidgee Council has announced a special series of events dedicated to celebrating seniors in the community.

Murrumbidgee Council Mayor, Ruth McRae said that throughout the month of May, seniors are invited to join in the festivities, which include a variety of engaging and enjoyable activities, all offered free of charge.

Cr McRae said it was a terrific opportunity to celebrate the wonderful seniors in the local area, whose contributions have enriched the community immeasurably.

“Initiatives such as these not only allow us to recognise and appreciate the invaluable contributions of seniors but also provide opportunities for connection and enjoyment,” she said.

The festivities kick off with a morning tea and Olympics luncheon at the Jerilderie Sports Club on Thursday May 2nd.

“We held a similar event last year which was a resounding success, so we are hoping for another great turnout this year,” said Cr McRae.

The celebrations continue on Friday May 3rd, with a free seniors movie at 1pm at Jerilderie Library.

On May 15th, Darlington Point will host a mini zoo adventure to Altina Wildlife Park, followed by a luncheon at the Darlington Point Sports Club.

Finally, on May 16th, Coleambally will host a coffee morning and cake decorating workshop at the Coffee Nest Cafe, offering seniors the chance to showcase their creativity and enjoy some delicious treats.

All events are free of charge and open to seniors residing in the Murrumbidgee Council area.

Bookings can be made by calling Murrumbidgee Council on 1300 676 243 or visiting any of the council offices. More information is available on murrumbidgee.nsw.gov.au.
