It’s Seniors Month, starting with October 1 when the United Nations International Day of Older Persons is celebrated. In October Jubilee has a couple of great activities to mark the occasion. We will bring together people of all ages, cultures, and abilities to connect and celebrate the essential roles that older people play in our communities. And what fun we are going to have!
Seniors Showcase and Safety Forum on Monday, October 17: We love it when our clients come together, share, talk, learn new things, have fun and make new friends. And we will be doing just that when we host our Seniors Showcase and Safety Forum at the Two Brothers Cafe at Indooroopilly.
The showcase is the chance to exhibit an item that you have created. Perhaps you paint, crochet, sew, knit, write music, do needlework, metalwork, sculpture, pottery, write, quilt or something else? We’d love to see your creative pieces and have you share about the item.
The day will also include tips on home safety and what to watch out for from a local police officer. Time over a light lunch will give you the chance to catch up with old friends or make new ones.
Jubilee Health Forum, Thursday on October 20: Also on the calendar is a forum focusing on the health of your eyes and ears. The forum will include speakers from Macular Disease Foundation Australia and Hearing Australia. Both speakers will provide time for Q&A sessions. The forum will be at the Sherwood Magpies AFL Club with a light lunch following.
The Jubilee buses will be available for pick-up and drop-off to your homes but clients who can drive are encouraged to join in both events by making their own way to the venues. To RSVP to either event phone activities coordinator Vicki on 3871 3220.
