Patrons were treated to free scones, sausages, and a healthy dose of sunshine on Saturday, 21 October at the South Eastern Community Care (SEC Care) Community Expo.
A huge thank you to the 25 organisations from around Tasmania who came together for one special event to pay homage to Tasmanian seniors.
SEC Care CEO Helen Pollard said for the second year running, the Organisation had proudly put the Expo together without any funding assistance, and at no cost to stallholders or patrons.
“Most items we needed to host the free sausage sizzle and Devonshire Tea were generously donated by local businesses and organisations from the Sorell community,” Ms Pollard said.
“We believe this Expo was a true testament to the community spirit that is alive and well in the Sorell municipality, and are excited to be a driving force behind that ethos into the future."
Happy Seniors Week 2017!
