Annual Seniors Day is a celebration of our Sri Lankan elders living in New South Wales (NSW). Generally, this is a fun filled day with various participation from Sri Lankan seniors with a sumptuous luncheon. Every year we hold this coinciding with the NSW Seniors Week.
In 2021, a Multicultural Seniors Luncheon was an exemplary event with an involvement of Blacktown local Council, Aboriginal Community, Australian seniors and South Asian communities.
Flavour of Ceylon provided a delicious lunch
We have conducted an evaluation of the event and overwhelmingly, the highlight of the day was the Aboriginal smoking ceremony and the multicultural community participation.Many have commented that they have participated in a smoking ceremony for the first time in their life.
