While the weather threatened the day before Wednesday 17th April 2019, an estimated 850 seniors were treated to a lovely day out at 9th SRCWA Rockingham Branch Have a Go Day, a LiveLighter Event held at Aqua Jetty in Warnbro. There were more than 80 sites and activities spread across the main hall and the grassed area showcasing Clubs, Groups, Agencies and Businesses from the Rockingham and surrounding areas.
The Official Opening commenced at 10.30am with introduction by SRCWA Executive Officer Dawn Yates, who introduced the Leader of the opposition Hon. Dr Mike Nahan. Barry Sammels, City of Rockingham Mayor officially opened the day and Cr. Joy Stewart did a fantastic job as MC.
Activities included, Curtin FM 100.1 Radio Broadcasting, Dance Floor Programme, Petanque, RAD Walkers & Heart Foundation, Sing Australia Rockingham, Specsavers – Hearing Tests, SRCWA Rockingham Pole Walking, Step Forward Orthotics – Free Foot Assessments and Tai Chi – Rockingham Taoist Tai Chi Society. Aqua Jetty Zumba, Janies Boys Choir, Simply Swing, Swing n’ Sway & Prime Movers entertained the crowd at the outdoor dance floor.
Thanks to the hard work of the SRCWA Rockingham Branch volunteers lead by Branch President Valma Sulc, the day was a resounding success and ran extremely smoothly. We also thank the crew from Wooroloo who’s hard work was invaluable in making this a great event.
This event would not have been possible without the magnificent sponsorship of; City of Rockingham, Aqua Jetty, Have a Go News, Kennards Hire, IGA, LiveLighter Healthway, Government of WA, Simply Swing, Telstra Warnbro, and Cockburn Party Hire.
