A month of celebrating social connections
Seniors have given so much to our community throughout their lives.
They have worked and often raised their families here, volunteered to run our local community and sporting clubs and given their all to making our city a great place to live and play.
Queensland Seniors Month had the theme Celebrating Social Connections.
This was our opportunity to get seniors back out and active across the city and build confidence post-pandemic.
While COVID-19 left its mark on local residents, with many people comfortable to stay at home these days rather than participating in low-cost or free community activities, the activities demonstrated that community connection is back in Division 2.
It was jam-packed with wonderful things to do for seniors including the Amputee and Family Support Group’s Seniors Morning Tea, Logan Loves Seniors Day and the Logan Area Committee of the Ageing’s Seniors Concert.
Division 2 Councillor Teresa Lane says the events were popular.
‘Each event reported greater than anticipated attendance, and seniors who came along to these events had the opportunity to get involved in activities, including paint ‘n’ sip and calligraphy workshops,’ Cr Lane says.
‘There were also massages, laughter yoga, card making as well as entertainment from the fantastic Dean Vegas and Logan’s own Palm Lakes choir.’
There are loads of activities in Division 2 each week outside of Seniors Month to get involved in.
