Local celebrations will this week commence in honour of the community’s senior citizens. The celebrations form part of the City of Kalamunda’s annual Senior’s Week festivities, which shine a light on the contributions made by older members of the community.
Mayor John Giardina said, “We’re delighted to once again join the rest of Western Australia in recognising and thanking our much valued senior residents. About a fifth of our residents are aged sixty or over, making up a significant portion of who we are and how much we have achieved. It’s fantastic to come together in celebration of those achievements and contributions.”
Activities will kick off on 2 November with a special exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery titled ‘That’s how I see it! Everything is open for interpretation’. The exhibition is a culmination of art by City of Kalamunda senior residents and will be on display until 11 November.
The week continues with a Melbourne Cup Luncheon on 6 November at the Woodlupine Family and Community Centre. Running from 11.30am to 4:00pm, attendees will be treated to an afternoon of entertainment including a fashion parade and big-screen showcase of the race that stops a nation.
The much-loved fish and chips lunch at Cicerello’s is back again this year on 13 November from 10am to 3pm. Attendees will receive a free lunch by the sea, including a fish basket, dessert, tea and coffee. Transport is also provided, departing and returning to the Jack Healey Centre and Woodlupine Family and Community Centre.
The Supper Club Variety Show is one event not to be missed, featuring performance, dance and music that filled dancefloors and shaped lives. You can catch the show at the High Wycombe Community and Recreation Centre from 3pm on 15 November.
