With 1 October being the International day of the Aged, Hirsch’s Silverlakes extended the celebrations by hosting a Pensioners afternoon to honour Senior Citizens in the community for their valuable contribution to society.
The Guest Speaker at the event, Marnus Roothman, is a Marketing Strategist, but also a renowned musician and ‘one-man-band’. Marnus entertained the guests with beautiful piano music after which he spoke on ‘Growing bolder, not older’. His inspirational message included 5 secrets on keeping a youthful attitude:
- Keep the child alive in you – stay in wonder at creation
- Keep moving – if you don’t move, you won’t be able to move
- Laugh at yourself and at situations.
- Keep the faith, look after your spiritual self
- Keep your enthusiasm – reach out to those around you, enjoy hobbies and social activities
There were some exciting lucky draw prizes up for grabs, including 2 beautiful bouquets of flowers sponsored by Woolworths, a Breakfast sponsored by RocoMamas and Cake and coffee sponsored by Doppio Zero. One lucky winner walked away with a Hirsch’s gift voucher and two winners with Hirsch’s Recipe books.
A special Pensioners discount was offered on the day, and many of the Pensioners took advantage of this as an opportunity to do some shopping.
