Participants, who must have been 62 years of age or older, were expected to don their creative outfits displaying the colours of the national flag.

Accordingly, a number of activities were expected to be delivered over a ten (10) month period commencing March 2020 with a Church Service and culminating in October 2020 with a Seniors’ Gala.
