Rock­ing­ham res­i­dents can cel­e­brate se­niors in their com­mu­nity by vis­it­ing the Selfie with a Se­nior Ex­hi­bi­tion at Gary Hol­land Com­mu­nity Cen­tre un­til April 14.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will show­case the pho­tos sub­mit­ted to the 2018 Selfie with a Se­nior Com­pe­ti­tion, with 60 pho­tos on dis­play, in­clud­ing the win­ning en­try from Kelly Powell.

The com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­aged com­mu­nity mem­bers to take a selfie with a se­nior and add a short de­scrip­tion of why they chose that per­son.

The City of Rock­ing­ham re­ceived a va­ri­ety of en­tries from peo­ple of all ages and back­grounds who cel­e­brated their grand­par­ents, great-grand­par­ents, neigh­bours, vol­un­teers, friends and men­tors.

Mayor Barry Sam­mels said the ex­hi­bi­tion was fo­cused on help­ing the com­mu­nity change the way they think about age­ing.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be open Mon­day to Friday from 10am-5pm, and on week­ends from 10am-4pm. En­try is free.
