The Hills and District Chamber of Commerce Seniors Committee is keen to hear from potential stall holders for its Twilight Years Expo on May 17.

Committee chair Carolyn Hohnke says last year’s event was a huge success, connecting local organisations and community groups with seniors.

With the theme of ‘When the sun goes down, the fun begins’ the 2024 expo is an opportunity for older people to discover more about support services and leisure activities.

Chance to network

“Last year we had 37 groups participating, with the majority being community organisations and we are expecting these numbers again in 2024,” Carolyn says.

“We are inviting groups and organisations to participate and make seniors even more aware of what is available for them, to get the maximum enjoyment and satisfaction out of their years in retirement.

“Networking between various groups was an unexpected bonus last year and we are sure 2024 will provide the same opportunity.”

How to Have an Epic Retirement author Bec Wilson will also attend the event.

The expo will be held on May 17 at PCYC Hills District, 135a Olearia St West, Everton Hills.

Phone John on 0448 186 115 or Carolyn on 0448 328 914 for more information.
