A diverse and energetic Seniors Festival Program

The Seniors Festival has been hectic. Every day there is something excellent on. Wednesday's panel 'Can we be ageless?', chaired by Peter Couchman, elicited lively contribution from the audience around feelings of invisibility associated with ageing, loss of identity with the end of paid work, and the need for transition planning to retirement. Father Bob provoked and challenged, cautioning people to watch out for 'invasive negative thoughts'. Aunty Caroline Briggs spoke powerfully of the role of stories in connecting the generations. This photo of the Share and Care Variety Entertainers was taken at the Community Ball held at the South Melbourne Town Hall last night. The RAAF Band got even the most reluctant dancers to their feet. Tomorrow the Life in Port Phillip photo exhibition opens at the Camera Club at 1 pm [cnr Ferrars & Dorcas St] and on Sunday at 2 pm guests will read from Port Phillip Writes at St Kilda Library. Refer to the full program for even more activities.
