May 05,2021 marked a very special Wednesday. News of the forthcoming event entered our calendar as "SHHH SECRET SENIOR BUSINESS". So the considerable number in attendance, including our Shire President, various Councillors, our new CEO, EPS Board members and volunteers and of course, a large contingent of our wonderful seniors, could only speculate and guess as to what it was all about. Especially when GWN, the local TV station, were setting up to film it.
But Sue, EPS President had locked down the purpose in a cast iron cloak of secrecy. All present had to scratch their heads and wait for things to unfold.
Curtains were drawn and the room went dark,an anticipative hush fell on the crowd and a recently installed large projection screen came to life with a Zoom connection to Relationship's Australia Executive Officer, Nick Tebbey.
Then the announcement! Empowering Plantagenet Seniors, through the community engagement and support, had placed TOP THREE in the National Neighbour Day Communities Connected Initiative!
A great achievement and well deserved recognition for EPS!
