Seniors Week 2013 to run from August 17

SENIORS Week is fast approaching and time is running out to list your Seniors Week activities in the Southern Downs Regional Council's official events calendar.

This year Seniors Week will run from August 17-25, but after last year's huge response the council plans to include any events happening either side of this week in their calendar as well.

Manager of community services Sheila Stebbings said the events and activities on offer during last year's Seniors Week were amazing.

"There were nearly 30 organisations, groups and clubs holding a variety of events and activities across the region from luncheons and dances to computing, tai chi and Heartmoves classes, not to mention the Seniors Expo," she said.

"The calendar of events is distributed far and wide throughout our region and is just one of the ways that council supports the promotion of Seniors Week and its commitment to seniors in the Southern Downs.

"The feedback last year was really positive, with the range of events and activities on offer valued greatly by local seniors and we are anticipating another great response."

If you would like your event or activity included in the calendar simply fill out the form, which is available from the council's community contact centres and libraries.

You can also download the form from www.southern downs.qld.gov.au.

All forms need to be returned to the council by June 20.
