Enjoying Planned Retirement (EPR) End of Year Celebrations

By December 12, 20062 Comments

Enjoying Planned Retirement (EPR) is a vibrant community group based at the North Ringwood Senior Citizens Centre at Norwood Park. EPR aims to provide a range of activities for senior citizens and retirees.

To celebrate the end of 2006 EPR provided a barbeque as well as a game of bocce. With 490 members, EPR is one of Maroondah’s largest senior citizens groups and provides a diverse range of activities ranging from theatre, music, craft, sports and day trips.

What makes EPR remarkable is that a significant proportion of its membership base is actively involved within the organisation. This means that a wide variety of activities can be supported and that the burden of planning events does not rest with just a few committee members.

The cooperation and dedication of EPR’s membership base distinguish it from many other organisations. With such a vibrant membership, EPR is bound to flourish in 2007.
