Last week heralded 50 years since the Senior Citizens Hall began operation.
To celebrate the November 19, 1968 anniversary, the senior citizens club hosted a commemorative morning in the freshly renovated building.
“It’s been two years we’ve been working to get it to where it is now,” said senior citizens treasurer Barbara Guthrie.
“When you look back through all the minutes, there’s 50 years worth of people who have come through those doors.”
The gathering followed the announcement of state funding for Junee’s annual senior’s week festival.
The week-long February event will benefit from the NSW government’s delivery of $1000.
It will be used to subsidise 11 activities aimed at the town’s pensioner community.
“It’s very good timing because we need to begin planning in the next couple weeks,” said council organiser David Koren.
A total of 500 people are expected get involved.
Last year, the festival received $800 under the same grant.
