Seniors shake a leg at celebration

SQUARE dancing, scones and sing-a-longs were part of Seniors’ Week tea dance celebrations at St Mary’s hall yesterday.

More than 150 people turned out for the fun-filled morning, which was aimed at bringing local seniors together and keeping them active.

Attendees were treated to tasty homemade treats before hitting the dance floor for several rounds of song and dance.

There were several experienced dance couples on hand to help warm the dance floor before the real stars shone.

The event was hosted by Warwick Community Options in conjunction with Queensland Health.

Community options team leader Kerry Taylor said she was pleased with the amount of interest shown from local seniors.

“We’re trying to celebrate the knowledge and wisdom and give older people a chance to celebrate and get out for the week,” Ms Taylor said.

“This really couldn’t have been achieved without our volunteers and without the support of our Seniors’ Week workers,” she said.
