“The Seniors’ Mayoral Awards are a wonderful opportunity to publicly honour some of Ku-ring-gai’s most outstanding citizens and local organisations that make a difference to the lives of others in our community,” said Ku-ring-gai Council Mayor Jennifer Anderson.

“If you know someone who inspires you, I encourage you to nominate them for an award – it’s a very special way of saying ‘thank you’,” she said.

The Seniors’ Mayoral Award is presented at a concert during the Ku-ring-gai Seniors’ Festival which is held in March every year. The Ku-ring-gai Seniors’ Festival celebrates everything that’s great about being an older resident in Ku-ring-gai, including living life to the fullest, celebrating achievements and relationships as well as highlighting how to navigate through life’s new challenges.
