Gunnawarra Shire is holding Seniors Week Celebrations right across the shire

A PLETHORA of events and activities are available for Gannawarra seniors throughout the Victorian Seniors Festival this month.

Mayor Brian Gibson said there was something for everyone, and most were being offered at either reduced cost or free of charge.

‘‘The main events on the Gannawarra program for Seniors Week include a seniors expo, silo art tour and library high tea, but there are many more options available which are detailed in the flyer available on our website or at our customer service centres,’’ Cr Gibson said.

The silo art tour is already proving popular, with places booking fast.

Held on Thursday, October 12, the tour will visit the silos of Lacelles, Roseberry, Brim and Sheep Hills.

It costs $15 per person and bookings are essential.

The seniors expo, to be held on Tuesday, October 17, at Kerang memorial hall between 11am and 3pm, celebrates the contribution older people make to our community.

This is a free event with the opportunity to meet health and aged care providers, community groups, leisure and lifestyle services and more.

Exposing Edith — the tale of French singer Edith Piaf, will be held at 6pm on October 21 at a mystery location in Kerang. Tickets are available online for $25 for adults and $20 for concession.

A library high tea will be held on Wednesday, October 25, at the Sir John Gorton library in Kerang.

It is a free event, but bookings are essential.

‘‘The Victorian Seniors Festival is in its 35th year and the month-long celebration is a highlight on the social calendar for many residents of Gannawarra,’’ Cr Gibson said.

‘‘I encourage Gannawarra seniors to get a copy of the event flyer and see the amazing range of events and activities on offer.

‘‘And don’t forget, public transport is free for Seniors Card holders between October 8-15.’’
