Mounties helps seniors feel young again
Getting older is inevitable, but Mounties Seniors' Days are the perfect therapy to help seniors feel young again.
Mounties has a strong commitment to its community and involving senior members in ongoing activities. The monthly Seniors' Day events, which promote health, well-being and socialising through various seminars, are one way that Mounties supports its senior community.
The health seminars are the main focus of Seniors’ Day, where patrons can get together to talk about keeping healthy. Different professionals including nutritionists and exercise physiologists speak at the events, highlighting health related issues the elderly may encounter. Example topics include the importance of exercise on a regular basis, healthy hearts and how to maintain aches and pains.
Mounties Group member, Wendy Wright, said: “I’ve been coming to Mounties for four years and very much enjoy the Seniors' Days. They provide me with an opportunity to get out of the house
and enjoy a day with friends.
"The seminars help me learn about my health and how to maintain it while heading into my senior years. It’s a great initiative for locals to get together and enjoy one another’s company," Mrs Wright
added. The monthly event also includes a morning filled with entertainment, which changes on a regular basis. Members can enter a $100 cash draw on the day and enjoy at $12 lunch at Emperor’s
Buffet. Mounties Group President, Kevin Ingram, said: "These events are always a great occasion for our senior members and guests to gain some new knowledge from a range of health related seminars.
We encourage people to attend on a regular basis to socialise and enjoy the entertainment too."
To celebrate the NSW Seniors Festival, which runs from 1 April until 10 April, Mounties is putting on a show to help seniors kick up their heels like they did in their youth.
The international hit show Boys in the Band will perform at Mounties on Friday, 8 April from 10.00am, singing many old classics such as 'Oh What a Night', 'Can’t Take My Eyes Off You' and
'Blame it on the Boogie'. Patrons can put on their dancing shoes and enjoy the live entertainment on offer.
Show tickets are $5 for members and $10 for guests and can be purchased online or at the Mounties box office.
