One of my favourite seniors Bruce Petrie shared his family photo album with me. I love really old photos, there is something wonderful about how they captured images back then. Its not like today you can take as many photos as you can and delete the images you hate! Back then you had to be careful and make sure everything was perfect, as film was quite expensive to develop. Some great shots from the year 1800….

On Thursday 5 June 2014 we were filmed by the Channel 7 Making a Difference crew with reporter Kay McGrath.
Very exciting to have filmed at the Griffith University Gold Coast campus with our very first “Senior Stars” Bram and Marina Nicolson who our founder Bev Wilkinson interviewed in 2009 when she was still a student!
Much thanks to our “Junior Stars” Jamie-Lee Dwyer and Mischeline King without their talent and patience we would not be where we are now!
Also a big thumbs up to Myjanne Jensen the Journalism and PR Internship Program Coordinater at Griffith University for her support and gathering of the most amazing journalism students!
Can’t wait till the segment goes to air!
Its beautiful how respect for the war veterans extends through all generations. Every Anzac Day, I love how these heroes are treated like rock stars at the MCG. These senior stars have the biggest smiles and waves grander than the Queen. With a 91,000 crowd cheering them on. Can’t get any better than that!
Here I am with Creative Writing teacher John Tinney, laying the foundation for an exciting workshop with university students and seniors in August!
I took some time out from not-for-profit paperwork to check out When Teenage Meets Old Age.
Such an inspiring series which shows relationships blossum between generations!
