Join The Seniors’ Month Connect Fest

Tablelands Regional Council is celebrating Seniors’ Month with a free Ageing Well Expo and regional events throughout October.

‘The ‘social connections’ theme is continuing from last year and people of all ages, cultures and abilities can connect and celebrate the important and essential roles older people play in our community,’ said Deputy Mayor Kevin Cardew.

‘The Ageing Well Expo is a great opportunity to hear from a range of experts including guest speakers from FNQ Health and Fitness, and Atherton Home Assist.

‘Watch demonstrations, join a club and get a free health and hearing check.

‘Sit back and enjoy the guest speakers, entertainment, free light refreshments (for seniors) and advice from the many professional organisations.

‘The expo is at 9.00am–1.00pm on Thursday 6 October at Merriland Hall in Atherton and the celebrations don’t stop there.

‘Throughout October there will be regional and regular free events and activities so be sure you don’t miss out.

‘If you’re doing something to celebrate Seniors’ Month, remember to register it on our events calendar,’ said Deputy Mayor Cardew.
