Senior's Week will take place from Sunday 17 March to Sunday 24th March this year and I am encouraging local seniors to get involved. This year's theme is "Live Life!" and over 900 free or discounted events have been organised around the state.
Events include the popular seniors' concerts, walks, comedy shows, computer classes and exhibitions as well as many other events. There really is something for everyone.
Senior’s Week recognises the active and vital contribution that our seniors play in our communities and it’s a chance to show our appreciation as well.
The week’s events are open for people over 60 and also for people over 50 who have a lifelong disability. Each year, over 30,000 seniors attend the Premier’s Seniors Week Gala Concerts will be held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Monday 18 March 2012 and Tuesday 19 March.
Ita Buttrose is one of the 12 esteemed seniors from across NSW who have been named as NSW Seniors Ambassadors. The Ambassadors will be speaking at a number of events during the week.
