APPLICATIONS are now open for a share in $125,000 to hold events celebrating Queensland seniors.
Member for Cook Jason O’Brien is calling on people to take advantage of the funding and get involved in Seniors Week 2012 next August.
“This funding is to help people run events next year to debunk common myths and stereotypes about ageing,” Mr O’Brien said.
“It’s about getting people of all ages and all backgrounds celebrating our seniors and the vital role they play in our community. Activities which may be funded include concerts, book launches, art and craft displays, expos, morning teas and achievement awards.”
