SENIOR citizens of the Tweed and adjoining shires are invited to the 12th anniversary of the Tweed Senior's Expo on Thursday, May 17.
With the Tweed being one of the largest community's with a population aged 65 and above, the expo will focus on the benefits of an ageing society, helping encourage the participation of seniors in community life while improving the quality of physical, social and emotional experiences and lifestyles of older people.
Noeline Brown, Ambassador for Ageing, will be the special guest at the expo this year and will be outlining some of the benefits and ways that older people can contribute to their communities and the business.
"At the expo senior citizens will have the opportunity to find out about services available for them and also be able to display/promote their work, hobbies and achievements."
"Seniors will also be able to participate in workshops to try new activities and link up to social and recreational groups," Ms Brown said.
The expo is not only for senior citizens, it encourages children of ageing parents to play an active role in assisting their parents to plan for changes as they age.
