October 5th, 2021Celebrating Macedon Ranges Seniors
The Victorian Seniors Festival Reimagined is back in 2021 and to celebrate, Macedon Ranges Shire Council will deliver ‘celebration boxes’ to 30 older residents who have made significant contributions to the Macedon Ranges community.
Council’s Corporate and Community acting director Gina Lyons said this year’s festival theme of ‘keep’n on’ recognised the resilience of older people and the many different ways they contribute to our community.
“This is our opportunity to say thanks and celebrate the wealth of local knowledge and wisdom in the Macedon Ranges.
“If you know an older person in the shire who has gone above and beyond, make sure you nominate them today.”
Residents of the Macedon Ranges Shire aged over 65 (or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged over 50) are eligible to be nominated.
Nominees will be considered on the basis of their contribution to the local community, how they demonstrate active ageing and promote a positive image of older people.
Nominations are open until Sunday, October 10.
To submit a nomination, visit mrsc.vic.gov.au/seniors-festival or call 5422 0333.
