Room to move for a growing oldies group
AFTER 10 years of running a healthy-lifestyle program at Elanora for people aged 50 and over, Southern Gold Coast 60 and Better is ready to expand ? thanks to a $25,000 grant for a new room from Jupiters Casino's Community Benefit Fund.
Preparations for the building of the new extension began last month.
President of 60 and Better Bill McMullen welcomed the grant saying it would allow for the building of a volunteer room and storage area.
Palm Beach Currumbin Lions Club volunteers and 60 and Better management committee members recently began dismantling the outdoor area in readiness for the extension.
The new room will provide an area for volunteers to meet and plan for the many activities and projects that take place.
Mr McMullen said that with over 23,000 attendances at activities throughout the year, 60 and Better's 480 members had shown a keen interest in pursuing the healthy ageing activities put on for them.
"Fun and fitness with table tennis, exercise classes and tai chi, craft, board games, line dancing, walking groups and a number of social get-togethers and outings makes this a creative and lively place," he said.
