Celebrating Macedon Ranges Seniors

During this year’s Festival, Macedon Ranges Shire Council is celebrating by giving away 'celebration boxes' to 30 older residents who have made significant contributions to the Macedon Ranges community.

Community members were asked to nominate eligible older residents who have contributed, 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.

Nominees are being considered on the basis of: 

  • Their contribution to the local community
  • How they demonstrate active ageing
  • How their contribution promotes a positive image of older people.

Nominations have now closed, but watch this space for more information about some of our amazing older residents who will be celebrated as part of this year’s Seniors Festival.
