IT’S com­ing up on 50 years since the Harold Hawthorne Se­nior Cit­i­zens Cen­tre opened in Carlisle and its rich his­tory will be cel­e­brated with a plethora of tra­di­tional ac­tiv­i­ties on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10. Harold Hawthorne was a Carlisle res­i­dent and Perth City coun­cil­lor who sup­ported the cre­ation of a lo­cal se­nior cit­i­zens cen­tre. He sadly died be­fore the build­ing that was named in his hon­our came to fruition. On Oc­to­ber 10 from 10am, vis­i­tors can have a go at yoga, tai chi, bingo and ball­room danc­ing, as well as watch per­for­mances from the Carlisle Pri­mary School choir and dancers and the En­core Strings Or­ches­tra. As well as the free en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties, mem­bers have or­gan­ised a three-course roast lunch, sausage siz­zle and cake stall. Good food has al­ways been as­so­ci­ated with the se­nior cit­i­zen cen­tre’s lo­ca­tion – 2 Me­mo­rial Av­enue, Carlisle. Pre­vi­ously the land was home to the Bick­ford Soldiers As­so­ci­a­tion Me­mo­rial Hall, which was used for re­turned soldiers to learn a trade and lo­cal res­i­dents hosted morn­ing and af­ter­noon teas. Call 9470 1155 for more in­for­ma­tion about the cel­e­bra­tion.
