Seniors Week begins in Bundy

SENIORS Week began with a bang yesterday, a drum bang that is.

The Moncrieff Theatre hosted the Seniors Week Concert which included entertainment from the Kalkie Drum Band and Norville State School.

Also in the line-up were the University of the Third Age Singers, a big favourite among the 250 audience members.

U3A singer Jane Ford said the group performed at the event every year.

“We wrap up the show and leave a lasting impression,” she said.

“I think everyone really enjoys it.”

Ms Ford said the audience members were not the only ones enjoying themselves.

“We (the singers) have a lot of fun as well,” she said.

“There is lots of laughing involved and the crowd loves it.”

Included in the group's line up were songs such as The White Cliffs of Dover, Give Yourself a Pat On the Back and The More We Are Together.

“A lot of people know the words and they sing along with us,” Ms Ford said.

“People really enjoy the whole concert from start to finish because it all begins Seniors Week.”

Mother Sam Webster was in the audience watching her three children perform in the concert with the Kalkie Drum Band.

“They practise every week so they like performing like this,” Mrs Webster said.

“They were here last year as well and it's awesome to watch. I never get sick of it.”

The theme of Seniors Week 2010 is positively ageless and there are plenty of events this week to reflect that. Seniors are invited to enjoy Jazz and Jam Tarts at Fairymead House from 1.30pm today.
