Seniors Festival 2018

Mount Alexander Seniors Festival 2018

“Get Social,” and get involved, with this year’s Seniors Festival.


A message from Mayor Bronwen Machin…

George Bernard Shaw wrote: “Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage: it can be delightful.” I find in my 65th year that he was right, especially in this connected and creative  community. The Mount Alexander Seniors Festival is a way of celebrating what we have done and what we still can do and still learn. Together we can find more challenges, contribution, meaning, and fun, even if we sometimes groan a little as we get out of chairs. Take courage and find the delight of joining in our festivities!”
