Senior Week celebrations

WILL it be the diamond stud earring, red nose, prickly black hair or bulging eyes that best depicts the mayor’s character?

Chronicle editor Peter Chapman has a tough decision ahead when he judges entries crafted by Maryborough’s seniors in the Mayor Mick Kruger Look-a-like Competition at the city hall tomorrow.

Various likenesses have been created with papier-mache masks and painted images topping the list of craft forms chosen for the competition that will be judged during the annual Mayoral Morning Tea between 9.30am and 11am.

Maryborough and District Committee on the Ageing project co-ordinator Ann-Maree Hasselbach said entries would be displayed where visitors could also nominate their favourite entry for a gold coin donation.

Money raised will be go to Alzheimer Australia. Winners will receive a bunch of flowers.

Guests can also enjoy a morning of song and dance displays by the Asian Women’s Development Association, U3A Folk Dancing group, Unndennoo Kindergarten (with children singing in Butchulla language), Roger Pilkington and the Riverside Choir.

Mr Chapman will arrive at the Mayoral Morning Tea to judge the Mayor Mick Look-a-like Craft Competition, which celebrates Active Ageing, after visiting Walker Street News, 94 Walker Street, Maryborough, where Chronicle readers are invited to meet him from 8am.
