The Poona Community, recognising the issues associated with its ageing population and the lack of supporting medical and allied health services to the town, has come together to form a self help group. It's all about Community Supported Senior Living.
The Young at Heart Group is free to join and is open to people of all ages who want to share in a regular get together, morning tea, the opportunity of group outings and the general support which a caring community can provide.
There is a dedicated sub-committee formed under the auspices of the Association with Jenny Mason, Lyn Corser and Susan Green working hard to facilitate this wonderful concept.
The group meets every second Tuesday of the month at 10 am at the Community Hall. Visitors to Poona are also most welcome, and encouraged, to attend.
The sub-committee aims to work with the three tiers of government and the medical and allied health sector to improve services and generally enhance the liveability of seniors in Poona. Things are already starting to take shape with stated support from government representatives.
So do take the initial step to come along and have some fun. You will be made very welcome.

In our recent get together we were fortunate to have a presentation by Maryborough Police on personal safety and amongst many things avoiding the ever increasing scams that we confront. You can download a copy of this great presentation.
