Celebrations for Myall Lakes seniors kick off this week as part of the largest senior’s festival in the southern hemisphere taking place across the state.

The two-week event, which officially begins today Monday 11 March, aims to recognise the contributions our older generations make.

More than 500,000 people take part in the event in NSW each year, and this year’s theme is Reach Beyond!

Tanya Thompson, Member for Myall Lakes said the festival is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate seniors in the community.

“Our seniors are such a valued part of our community, and we can’t do enough to thank them for the knowledge and achievements they have passed down through generations,” Mrs Thompson said.

“As part of the two-week festival, there are a range events across the state including art classes, fitness and live music as well as events that can be accessed online, so you can join in on the fun no matter where you live.”

“There are lots of wonderful free events happening in the Myall Lakes also, I encourage our seniors to try something new, meet new people and take advantage of these fantastic two weeks.”

“This year I’m celebrating our seniors by hosting the annual Myall Lakes Seniors Concerts, with two great concerts on the 25th of March at Club Forster, and two on the 26th of March at Club Taree.”

The NSW Senior’s Festival has been running for over four decades, providing entertainment and improving our senior’s quality of life.

The 2024 NSW Seniors Festival will run from Monday, 11 March until Sunday, 24 March.
