Sharing stories for Seniors Week
Published on 13 October 2021
This week we are celebrating the successes our senior citizens bring to our community.
Mayor Libro Mustica said Council had collected stories from a selection of prominent seniors in the region, who talk candidly about their youth, their challenges and their victories.
“Pat Jarrett shares her love of stray animals and speaks about her all-time favourite holiday,” Cr Mustica said.
“Gary Ennals speaks about his love of sport, how he has been involved in various local committees for the betterment of Cobram, and why he believes music to be the best invention ever.
“Denise Kennedy shares her secret to a successful relationship and speaks about the most important lesson she has learned.
According to Cr Mustica, when it comes to community contribution you would be hard pressed to find anyone as committed as Laurie Kennedy.
“Laurie talks passionately about the groups and organisations he volunteered with and how he learned to value hard work from a very young age,” he said.
“Trevor Lewin was a teacher for nearly three decades and since his retirement he volunteers his time at the Yarrawonga Neighbourhood House.
“He shares his love of chocolate pudding, homemade of course, and who the biggest influence was on his life.
“Inventor and pig farmer extraordinaire, Peter Murray talks about his most memorable inventions and the most important lesson he has learned.
“But we also want to hear from you – tell us your stories and send us a photo or two.
“We will include it on our web page dedicated to these Senior Stories.”
