Mornings, Melodies & Memories Program
Seniors make up a significant portion of the Bland Shire, and are often members of the community that have lived in the Shire for many years and have amazing stories to share.
Research shows older adults who participate in senior programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being.
One of the objectives of the Bland Shire Council is to improve the well-being of all members of our community, including seniors. One of the ways that Bland Shire Council has been doing this, is via the Mornings, Melodies and Memories program that runs across the districts in the Bland Shire.
Mornings, Melodies & Memories is a free program that Bland Shire Council has been running for several months specifically for seniors in Bland Shire. The program offers an opportunity for seniors in the districts to share a morning tea together, accompanied by live music provided by various local talents, and to share some memories and stories with their peers.
Our program leaders have been travelling to the different districts to provide this service across the Shire every week. The seniors that participate are given a chance to connect with their peers, whilst enjoying a morning of gentle entertainment.
For the duration of the program, separate events have been held each week in a particular district. However, on June 29, we are holding a joint Mornings, Melodies & Memories session whereby ALL seniors from any of the districts in the Bland Shire are welcome.
The morning will be held at Toppy Hall in Wyalong from 10:30am-12:00pm on June 29. The free event will include a morning tea and performances by the West Wyalong Town Choir and the Wyalong School Choir.
We encourage all of our seniors to come and join the activities. For further information and to book a seat, phone Bland Shire Council on 6972 2266.
