PROGRAM 2019


2019 Seniors Week Program

Message from the Mayor Welcome to Seniors Week 2019. This week is all about acknowledging our seniors and the invaluable contribution they make to our community. Celebrations officially start on Saturday 9 November with the romantic comedy film “Overboard” at the Queens Park Theatre. The following day varying cultures will be in focus with the Multicultural Concert featuring local Indonesian, Chinese, Mabuhay and Indian Dancing Groups. This wonderful instalment to Seniors Week is sponsored by the Midwest Multicultural Association and is sure to be popular.

The Mayor’s Mystery Bus Tour is always a sell-out and a great way to get insights into the latest projects and happenings in Greater Geraldton. Don’t delay with purchasing your tickets to this one! There’s all this and so much more going on as part of Seniors Week 2019.
