Seniors are sure to take a trip down memory lane at this year’s Canterbury-Bankstown’s Seniors Week event; A Morning at the Movies.
City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said seniors are being
encouraged to share a photo from their childhood and describe it in 100 words or
less. The author of the winning entry and the People’s Choice selection will receive
a $250 Coles/Myer gift voucher.
“With so many different languages spoken in our city, there are some great stories to
tell,” Mr Colley said.
“This competition enables our seniors to share those stories. I’m sure some may be
harrowing while others will be fun but all will be interesting.
“It also provides an opportunity for our seniors to reminisce.”
All photo submissions will be displayed at Bankstown Hoyts Movie Cinemas before
the screening of the new release film, Hidden Figures, which depicts the previously
untold story of Kathrine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson, the brilliant
women working at NASA, who were the brains behind one of the greatest operations
in history - the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
The competition winner will be chosen beforehand and invited to speak about their
winning photo at the film screening, while the People’s Choice winner will be
announced at the screening.
A Morning at the Movies will take place on Tuesday 7 March, from 10am. The
morning is free for local seniors, however, bookings are essential and can be made
by calling 9707 9464.
Personal photographs can be scanned via email and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or the original photograph submitted at either of Council’s Customer Service Centres in Bankstown or Campsie.
