Community Engagement: Happy Seniors Week Musical Morning Tea

On Monday 19th August 2019, Inala Community House Community Engagement team celebrated Happy Seniors Week with our Musical Morning Tea participants.

From 10am to 12pm, the free celebration was held at ‘Our Place’ Hall (corner of Japonica and Robinia Streets, Inala). Everyone was welcome.

Queensland Seniors Week (17-25 August 2019) is an initiative by Queensland Government and Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland to build positive, inclusive and age-friendly communities.

Together, we value the contribution older people have made – whether as volunteers or in the workforce, community leaders or carers, grandparents or advocates.

Seniors Week goes on all week but it’s our special day today. Thank you all for coming. Firstly thank you to our Musical Morning Tea volunteers including Aileen, Desmond, Jimmy, Thelma, Thu and more busy working in the kitchen. Thank you to Twilight Shadow for the special band performance. Sit back and enjoy the music or get up and dance with us. Roast lunch will be at 11am please help yourselves then,” our Musical Morning Tea Coordinator Shirley Schneider said.

Good morning and wish you all a very happy Seniors Week. Firstly I’d like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land. Inala Community House team feels so blessed to celebrate with our community today. We have prepared a great roast feast for everyone. Thank you to the band too and please enjoy,” our Community Engagement Manager Haley Kiata said.

Everyone was singing and dancing along to the lively band, while enjoying a cuppa and a chat in between. It was a joyous day.

Everything roast: mixed vegetables, lamb, chicken, pumpkins, potatoes. Our team also prepared bread rolls and vanilla ice cream desserts. Yum!

Thank you to our awesome volunteers and staff contributing to the event’s success.
