Seniors Festival

The Victorian Seniors Festival turned 40 in 2022 and Council celebrated by presenting celebration boxes to 25 older residents who made significant contributions to the Macedon Ranges community.

Community members have nominated a resident over the age of 65 (or over the age of 50 if Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) who has contributed to the community. For example:

  • To a community group
  • To family life
  • At work
  • By keeping physically and mentally active
  • To arts and culture
  • By making a difference to the environment
  • As a First Nations elder
  • To LGBTI pride
  • As a COVID champion

Celebration boxes were presented to recipients in October.
