Every year, the Townsville City Council puts on a special seniors luncheon and this year, clients from Arcare North Shore went along again.
The Seniors Luncheon is a celebratory, themed luncheon to recognise and show appreciation to Townsville’s senior community.
The luncheon is for Townsville residents over 60 years of age and is held as part of Queensland Seniors Week 2019.
The 2019 theme is celebrating Country & Western “Pub with No Beer”.
We listened to music from Slim Dusty revival bands which were simply amazing because they played in a sport stadium filled with approximately 300 people!
Clients put on their best country style hats and thoroughly enjoyed a beautifully catered lunch.
Everyone also received a carton of milk to help the farmers facing drought.
All in all, it was a good celebration of Queensland Seniors as we line danced and sang along all morning.
