Redlands Coast’s Inspiring Seniors have been unveiled for 2018 at part of this year’s Seniors Week celebrations.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said she was proud to be able to recognise the inspirational locals as part of the annual Blue Care community initiative, now in its tenth year.
“The Inspiring Seniors initiative shines a light on some exceptional residents whose contributions enrich the Redlands Coast community immeasurably,” Cr Williams said.
“It is indeed a difficult task to select a worthy individual to nominate each year – with such a talent pool from which to choose!
“Many of our seniors contribute significantly to the Redlands community on a regular basis – compassionately giving their time, skills and ideas for the benefit of others.
“With a higher than average population of retirees, the Redlands Coast is blessed with many dedicated volunteers, community champions and philanthropists. Redland City Council is a proud supporter of this Blue Care initiative, which recognises these generous seniors.”
