While the NSW 2016 Seniors Festival, the largest event of its kind for seniors in the southern hemisphere, is set to kick off 1 April, people over 60 with real estate in St. George have a number of opportunities to get involved. Rockdale City Council's 2016 Free Activities for Seniors Month runs from 12 March to 15 April and features exciting events all month long.
Seniors who like to carry a tune can join the Sing Your Heart Out Choir, a group of choristers led by an experienced director that will be performing throughout the month. The choir is open to anyone who would like to join, and there is no audition required.
Performances will be held throughout the month, including a flash mob! Rehearsals are on Thursdays at the Rockdale Town Hall from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m until 14 April.

There will be a number of other events covering a wide range of interests throughout the month as well, including outings, informational sessions and performances.
