Murrindindi Shire’s over 65s are invited to lunch as part of the Seniors’ Week celebrations this month.
Seniors’ Week is part of the month-long Victorian Seniors’ Festival and held every October for 35 years. Celebrations and events are held for seniors both in Melbourne at the Festival’s hub and rural and regional areas.
Seniors’ Week events are being held in Alexandra, Eildon, Kinglake and Yea.
Community Services Portfolio Councillor, Sandice McAulay, said the Shire had a higher proportion of seniors than many rural areas in the State and encouraged our communities to make the most of the celebrations.
“Murrindindi Shire Council is holding a series of lunches to celebrate Seniors’ Week. These are a great way for our seniors to get out and catch up with their friends and perhaps make a few new ones,” Cr McAulay said.
“Bookings are essential as these events are popular. As places are limited, I’d recommend people get in and reserve their spots early.”
“These lunches are partly funded by the Victorian Government as part of the Seniors’ Week celebrations, to ensure all of our seniors can attend. So our seniors only need to make a small contribution to the cost of the lunches”, Cr McAulay said.
Events are occurring in the following locations:
Eildon – 12 noon – Wednesday, October 11
Venue: Golden Trout Hotel Eildon
Kinglake – 12 noon – Wednesday, October 11
Venue: Kinglake Pub
Alexandra – 12 noon – Friday, October 13
