50 & Better Healthy Ageing: Sausage Sizzle Social Lunch

All ready for a good time: our Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge) participants, Program Manager Haley Kiata and Program Coordinator Larissa Vaiomanu.

Sausage Sizzle – the great Australian tradition.

On Thursday 22nd June 2017, Inala Community House Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge) organised a Sausage Sizzle Social Lunch at our centre (29 Chardean Street, Acacia Ridge).

We welcomed both members and general public to join the event at only $3.

The Sausage Sizzle Social Lunch aimed to celebrate both new and existing friendships over tasty food and drinks. It was also a great opportunity especially for senior members to become more active both physically and socially.

Welcome our new members couple: Margaret and Wayne. Both enjoy Tai Chi, Gentle Exercise, Indoor Bowls and 8-Ball Pool Table at our centre.

A big hello to one of our new Program participants, Sid Nair.

Currently in his seventies, Sid lives in Algester with his wife. His neighbour Ray Turton recommended Sid to join our program which offered many wonderful healthy ageing benefits and friendships.

I enjoy attending the Snooker activity the most. It’s been 30 years since I last played and now I am able to get back into the game again. I also enjoy the friendly and welcoming atmosphere in this centre. Besides coming here, I mostly stay home to look after my grandchildren. I am also passionate about volunteering and fundraising for community events,” said Sid.

Thank you to our Program Manager Haley Kiata and Program Coordinator Larissa Vaiomanu for organising and cooking this Sausage Sizzle Social Lunch. We look forward in having more in future!
