EV­ERY­THING that is pos­i­tive about grow­ing older was cel­e­brated at this year’s Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week din­ner dance on Fri­day.

Mem­bers of Ark­low Pos­i­tive Age­ing and many guests came to­gether for what is a high­light of the week-long an­nual cel­e­bra­tion.

Guests re­called a very pos­i­tive Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week for 2018 and many of the mem­bers en­joyed a num­ber of out­ings and spe­cial event as part of it.

Fol­low­ing a de­li­cious meal, guests en­joyed en­ter­tain­ment with The Wan­der­ers - Joe Holt and David Canavan,

A bouqet of flow­ers was pre­sented to Mr Gla­dys Lynch, Abbey Park who was the old­est mem­ber at the din­ner dance.

‘It went very well and there was a great turnout. The meal was lovely and the mu­si­cians played very well,’ said sec­re­tary Maria Neary.

Maria said that there were some great raf­fle prizes given out dur­ing the day.

‘Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week was re­ally well sup­ported this year and the mem­bers en­joyed some great days out in­clud­ing the Mys­tery Tour to Delta Gar­dens in Car­low. There were also a few win­ners at the Gowran races,’she said.
