Enjoying Planned Retirement (EPR) a community group with over 490 members, is based in the Senior Citizen’s Centre located in Norwood Park in Ringwood North. To celebrate their 30th anniversary EPR organised an art and craft show highlighting the many talents of members and the activities undertaken by the group.
Through providing a mixture of different activities, such as, dancing, bocce, trivia nights, theatre, art, day trips, drama, as well as many more, EPR is able to offer a truly vibrant, enjoyable and friendly atmosphere for people that are of retirement age.
This morning I was invited by EPR to officially launch their first art and craft exhibition. With over 500 people attending the two- day exhibition, the weekend was truly a success and allowed EPR to showcase that that it truly does provide an enjoyable atmosphere for not only its participants but also the wider community.
In addition I spoke to the Ringwood Arts Society, which is also based at Norwood Park. The Ringwood Arts Society includes a number of excellent artists and holds regular art exhibitions throughout Maroondah, including a display that is beginning next week at the ground floor of Eastland.
With such a strong and active membership I am sure that EPR is going to have many more years of enjoyment and success.
