There were no “senior’s moments” when retired fisherman Kevvy Warren recited three poems from memory at the opening of Strike, a tuna fishing exhibition at the Eden Killer Whale Museum on Monday.
Mr Warren kept the full house in amused awe for around eight minutes as his lilting voice evoked Eden’s former fishing days and the colourful characters that shaped them.
The opening, tailored to seniors but sure to reach many more generations before it closes later this year, was just one of the many events held to celebrate Seniors Week.
Residents of Nullica Lodge enjoyed a garden party on Monday afternoon hosted by the Friends of Nullica.
Bathed in soft afternoon sun, they feasted on scones, cakes, tea and coffee.
Eden’s choir has brought sentimental songs to life on several occasions this week, not least the Strike opening where interesting facts about the songs and their creators were shared with the audience.
Today (Thursday) activities continue with a Bega Valley Regional Gallery run photography workshop at Panboola Wetlands (6499 2187) and morning tea and book club at the Merimbula Library (6495 2767).
Friday’s events include the Eden Men’s Shed luncheon (0407 963 036), photography competition and exhibition at Imlay House (6495 8600). The Eden Access Centre also has technological activities.
