Hundreds of community members joined together last week to celebrate Seniors Week as the City of Greater Geraldton provided a comprehensive line-up of activities, tours and entertainment. The week celebrating our seniors was held from November 6-13, with the City’s program of events providing something for everybody. To start the week off, seniors were invited to attend the Queens Park Theatre on Friday to watch the 2021 comedy drama The Duke. It was back to the QPT on Monday as the Golden Age Girls performed a hilarious act. A basket weaving class, afternoon quiz, oral history talk at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery, a morning walk from QEII to the foreshore, croquet classes, free three-course lunch, emergency preparedness course and outdoor lawn bowls were some of the activities crammed into the full week. Geraldton MP Lara Dalton hosted a morning tea to socialise with and thank seniors on Thursday before a massive bingo session was held later that day. City heritage services co-ordinator Lorin Cox said the oral history morning touched on the historic Town Hall, reflecting on fond memories over seven decades. “Attendees were enthralled with stories of dances, concerts (in particular Slim Dusty), flower shows, Sunshine Festival Queen Quests, fancy dress balls, silverware displays, Geraldton Concert Artists productions, Post Office Balls and much more,” she said. A grandparents story time at the library was a special event that gave seniors the opportunity to join their grandchildren in singing, dancing and storytelling. Mayor Shane Van Styn showed seniors around the city during the Mayor’s Mystery Bus Tour, ending at the QEII for a Q&A opportunity with the City. Seniors took another bus on Saturday, touring the Greenough Museum and Gardens with a Devonshire tea included. Last but not least, a multicultural concert and afternoon tea was held at the QPT.
