Seniors Week 2014 in Dorset

Dorset Council is pleased to advise it will be sponsoring several events in Dorset during Seniors Week 13-19 October 2014. The theme for this year is the inter-generations and seniors are invited to bring their young families and friends along to encourage connection between the generations.

An event program can be downloaded from the Dorset Council website, www.dorset.tas.gov.au/seniorsweek or obtained from the Council offices.

This year the NE Horticultural Society will be hosting a tour of Scottsdale gardens and Heather Donaldson will return to run Humour for Health Workshops in Scottsdale and Bridport.

Tasmania’s Senior of the Year 2014, Dr Christina Henri will be the Special Guest Speaker at the Seniors Lunch on Friday 17th October.  Dr Henri is the honorary Artist in Residence at the Cascades Female Factory Historic Site and has received worldwide acclaim for her art installations including ‘Sea of Bonnets’ which recognises the hardships endured by female convicts.
