Pinevale Villas, at 1 Star Avenue, Goonellabah, will host its second Seniors Expo on Thursday 16th September, from 10am to 2pm.
The Expo theme this year is’Ageing Well’ and will feature a monster book sale organised by Pinevale residents and staff, with the proceeds from the sale of all pre-loved books going to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
‘Ageing Well’ is all about showcasing some of the opportunities that now exist for older people and their families, who want access to information and services that help in continuing to enjoy a good quality of life.
More than 40 community organisations, private businesses and health promotion practitioners have booked in for the event, together with entertainers.
As well as being able to provide specific information about ageing – perhaps trying out mobility aids, or having a remedial massage or having your blood pressure checked – the expo this year will have a definite spring flavour with a plant display, a fashion parade, homewares, gifts and accessories, lots of live music and good food.
Organisers can still take some bookings from community groups and businesses who have a focus on the older population and would like to be involved in this informative and fun event.
Stalls sites are in the grounds of Pinevale and are outside, under cover. Pinevale can help with shades and chairs.
Entry is by gold coin donation for those attending and stalls are free, however, organisers do ask for a small gift to the resident fund-raising commitee.
Funds raised from entry into the expo will go to Pinevale Resident’s Fundraising Committee.
