‘What’s Age got to do With It?’ - Seeking Stories from Penrith Seniors
Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith encouraged Penrith’s locals to submit their creative works to the Seniors Stories Volume Seven Writing Competition.
“We want to hear stories that remind us age is just a number, and I know seniors in our region have exceptional tales to tell,” Stuart Ayres said.
“This is a great opportunity for people to recount life-changing moments, share funny tales they’ve gathered on their journey through life, or use their imagination to spin a great yarn.”
Previous Penrith locals to have their stories published in recent year’s editions include: Wendy Gordon, Margaret Onus, Sue Artup, Paul Ryan and Ilona Krueger.
Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee said the NSW Seniors Card competition has been running since 2013 and is effective in uniting generations.
“Sharing stories builds connections between young and old in our communities. It’s a way to recognise the valuable experiences of NSW seniors,” Mr Lee said.
“The NSW community is full of inspirational older people, who have stories worth sharing that can motivate, entertain and educate us all.”
NSW Seniors Card and NSW Senior Savers Card members can apply between 1 April and 31 May 2021.
