SENIORS' Week is gearing up to be a jam-packed series of events.

Tweed Shire Senior Citizens Committee is in the process of compiling a program of events for the week running from March 17-25.

With bus trips, concerts, information sessions and workshops on the agenda, the week will kick off with the opening ceremony at Banora Point Community Centre.

Local artist Lachlan Wallace is the feature entertainment for the afternoon and there will be a twist of Irish for St Patrick's Day.

Do you have a Redi-Plan - Red Cross are holding information sessions where participants will receive information needed to cope with emergencies such as fire and flood.

Tweed Area Libraries will present Wellness on Wheels to aged care facilities/ retirement centres.

Wellness on Wheels aims to improve the emotional wellbeing of senior residents through oral storytelling - fostering the love of reading.

There are several events in Tweed, Banora and Murwillumbah and Burringbar School of Arts will hold a morning of entertainment, memorabilia and a home made morning tea.

"As in previous years the week is full of fun, information and friendship," a spokeswoman for the committee said.

The program will be published in the Tweed Link, available at the Tweed Shire Council offices as well as libraries, licensed clubs and community centres.

The program can also be downloaded from the Tweed Shire website in the community events listings http://www.tweed.nsw.gov.au.

Tweed Shire Senior Citizens Committee is supported by Tweed Shire Council - for more information in regard to Seniors Week in the Tweed contact Lyn Porter 0755 232030 or Pauline Dow 0266728051
