Seniors WeekThe 2015 annual Seniors Week activities kick off this weekend and there are so many great events we thought we’d hand pick our Top Five. So we got our magnifying glass out, stooped over the program and here’s what we came up with:

Number 1: Intergenerational Technology Forum, with a focus on providing seniors with helpful information on using new technologies, including tablets and smart phones. Greg Percival Community Centre in Ingleburn on Thursday, March 19, between 10am and noon.

Number 2: Country & Western Cake Decorating Contest. Are you an amazing cake decorator? Enter this Country & Western themed cake decorating contest for your chance to win a mystery prize. Cake entries will be judged and the winner announced by special guest performer, Renny Kodgers. Be as creative as you can with the theme in mind. At the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, this Saturday, March 14, from noon.

Number 3: Seniors Tea Dance, a breezy afternoon of dancing, live music and superb high tea featuring the waltz, tango, foxtrot and more on Saturday, March 21 at the Campbelltown Arts Centre, between 2pm and 4pm.

Number 4:  Young at Heart Seniors Film Festival. Free screenings of new films to celebrate 2015 Seniors Week, at the Campbelltown arts centre on Monday, March 16, 10am to 5pm. Films to be shown are: Divide in Concord, Rock the Casbah,  It’s Your Call.

Number 5: We left the best till last, the Seniors Soiree, an old-style evening party in the fabulous performance space and beautiful surrounds of Campbelltown Arts Centre. This is a social event for you to share with like-minded people in a celebration of the talents, interests and achievements of local seniors. Expect a-cappella, poetry, storytelling, skits, comedy and dance – a celebration of the lounge-room style entertainment made popular in the days before television. Those were the days, my friends, before Twitter and Facebook and other modern evils. Sunday, March 22.
