Queensland Seniors Week is always an exciting time for everyone at Arcare Springwood!
From 19th – 25th August, there are events all over Queensland to provide older Queenslanders with the opportunity to explore programs and services, events and activities, connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, and to celebrate the many contributions older people make in their communities.
This is what Queensland Seniors Week is all about.
As part of the celebrations, Arcare Springwood attended the Logan Seniors Expo at the Logan Entertainment Centre to celebrate the Seniors of Logan.
It was a great morning which started with the acknowledgement of some amazing seniors in the Logan community and the many contributions they have made over the years.
After the formal celebrations, we received some brilliant entertainment from a tribute group of the 1960s’ The Carpenters.
The performance consisted of many popular songs and also some comedy gold.
All the ladies from Arcare Springwood who attended the expo were singing along to all the songs, as they knew them all by heart.
After the show, we walked around looking at all the stalls that were advertising different things for seniors and everyone really enjoyed looking at the variety of workshops and presentation.
We finished the day by collecting our Love Seniors show bag.
It was such a great day to be a part of and an honour to be in the company of so many wonderful people, who have contributed to the happiness and wellbeing of the seniors of Logan.
