SOUTH Eastern Community Care (SEC Care) hosted its family-friendly community expo recently, bringing together more than 25 organisations from the health and community sectors to pay homage to Tasmanian seniors.

SEC Care chief executive officer Helen Pollard said the organisation was proud to offer its free community event during Seniors Week.

“Despite a little rain while we were setting up, it was a wonderful day to hold a community expo, with many organisations coming together to share their knowledge and skills with the community,” she said.

“A great day was had by all who attended, with more than 250 sausages and 30-kilograms of flour used for the free sausage sizzle and Devonshire Tea.

“Hosting an event like this during Seniors Week is our way of showing our elders how much we value their contribution to our community.

“We believe the SEC Care community expo is a testament that community spirit is alive and well in the Sorell municipality and are excited to be a driving force behind that ethos into the future.”

SEC Care started hosting its community expo during Seniors Week in 2016.

Each year, the event has increased in size and attendance as more people seize the opportunity to celebrate Tasmanian seniors.

SEC Care is a Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation that provides quality community care to people of all ages.
