RSL event is set to put seniors in focus
RSL Care Milford Grange is opening its doors and inviting residents and community locals to take part in a family snapshot session to celebrate Seniors Week.
The event will take place on August 19 during Seniors Week and is an opportunity for families to celebrate the older Australians in their lives by capturing special memories through keepsake photographs.
RSL Care chief executive Craig Mills said the event embraced the theme for Seniors Week, "It's on for young and old", by encouraging community connections with people of all ages.
"As an organisation whose passion is guiding people to make the most out of life we want to create opportunities for family, friends and the wider community to come together and celebrate older Australians," Mr Mills said.
"This is why we're inviting not only our residents and their families but also community locals to visit our Milford Grange community and spend time together, with the added bonus of having a family photograph taken by a professional photographer.
"It's so important we recognise the valuable contribution of older Australians in our communities and participating in Seniors Week is just one of the many ways we can show our appreciation."
As part of the event, participants are invited to have their photograph taken with a senior member from their family; this includes both families from RSL Care Milford Grange and from the local community.
Ipswich business Whitehead Studios has offered to take the photographs of all participants.
